Important! All members are volunteers!

We are an all-volunteer organization.  Therefore, we rely on the work of our member-volunteers.

All GHSA members are required to volunteer their time as ground-crew, dispatcher, tow-pilot, or instructor at least one day per month (Subject to their qualifications, GHSA board approval, and GHSA policies).

If you are expecting to be served like you would in a commercial flight operation, this is not the place for you. We are a community of volunteers and all members are expected to help each other and the organization. If you do not help, your flying privileges will be revoked.
