HR200Over 40 years ago a handful of aviation enthusiasts got together and formed the nucleus of Ponderosa Aero Club.  Today PAC continues on.  We’re bigger, better than ever and still maintain a safety record second to none.  If you are someone that is considering learning to fly you won’t find a better environment than Ponderosa.  Already a licensed pilot looking for a place to rent an aircraft?  With a fleet consisting of the venerable Cessna 172, to a modern glass panel twin Piper Seneca III, we should be able to accommodate your needs.  Are you wanting to add ratings to your ticket, or take on the challenge of flying into Idaho’s back country strips?  Our staff of professional instructors will work with you to develop a plan that can make it happen.

Explore our site, see what we have to offer and get to know us.  If you have questions or would like to come down for a tour of our facilities, please contact us.  We’re located at 4888 W. Aeronca St. on the south side of the Boise (BOI) airport.

Thanks for stopping by.  We look forward to providing you with the best training, the best aircraft, and the friendliest people.  Come join us!  We’re always looking for good new members!

The Club

Ponderosa Aero Club was formed in 1974 at a little airport on the Boise River called Strawberry Glen. Forty years later and established at BOI, we're bigger and better than ever, with a safety record second to none.
