Do you want to go flying? Let's go flying is a meetup group specifically if you want to go flying around in a small plane! Yes, it's expensive, and that's the purpose of this meetup to split up the costs of the plane pro rata to make it much more affordable than going flying by yourself! I am also a flight instructor. Renting a plane is just like renting a car (depending on the plane typically anywhere from $100-$170 per hour), it's great and a lot of fun! Then, depending on how many people are in the plane, we can spit the cost of the time to make it cheaper for everyone!

To use an example - let's say that the plane cost is $100 per hour, and let's say that there are 4 people in the plane (including myself) - then everyone would be responsible for 25% of the flight cost, so $25 per hour, per person.
