Greetings, Aviation Enthusiast!

Over 40 years ago, a handful of aviation enthusiasts got together and formed the nucleus of Ponderosa Aero Club.  We are bigger now and maintain a safety record second to none.  You won’t find a better general aviation environment than as a member of Ponderosa.

In addition to several social and recreational events throughout the year, we also offer member education and training for both pilots and non-pilots.  Are you already a licensed pilot looking for a place to rent aircraft?  With a fleet consisting of revered Cessna and Piper aircraft, chances are that we can accommodate your needs.  Are you wanting to add ratings to your ticket, enjoy cross-country travel, or take on the challenge of flying into Idaho’s back country strips?  Our club’s 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 greatest 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.
