Fleet Composition
TSS currently maintains a fleet of three IFR certified Cessna aircraft including a 180hp skyhawk with a dream panel, a modern skylane, and a skylane RG. We also own a like-new Vans RV12, a two-seater light sport aircraft (certified) with a glass panel.  Fleet composition is periodically evaluated to ensure we are best meeting member needs.

Fleet Size
We have found that keeping one plane per 10-15 members has been the most successful in keeping the balance between high utilization and great availability. If membership continues to exceed our constitutional threshold we will cap membership or acquire additional aircraft.

Location
TSS has three aircraft stored in hangars and one in a (pull through) tie down on the field.

Maintenance
Our fleet is maintained to the highest standards, with plane captains for each aircraft taking care of maintenance issues as they arise.

Rates
Fleet rates are based on the actual costs of operating the aircraft (including reserves)

Scheduling
As a TSS member, you will be given the keys to all aircraft you are checked out in. Then, you are free to book online and fly whenever you want. 24/7.

Headsets
The club owns four pairs of spare headsets which can be used for passengers. Two are located in the lock box on the field and two are located in the hangar for 931SJ.
