About Us

Artisan Aviation, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation with the members as shareholders.  The club owns its own aircraft.

The Club is managed by an executive team consisting of a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, maintenance chief, and an at-large member.  We are disciplined about operating the Club with all the corporate formalities: regular meetings, with minutes, annual elections, committee activities, and so on. Most members own their own business or work in a business where this discipline is second nature, and that serious, professional attitude pervades all other aspects of Club operations, including safety, maintenance, training, and personal flying behavior.

To join the club a member buys shares valued to each aircraft they wish to fly.  The share value of each aircraft is the value of the airplane plus the cash that is connected to that airplane, divided by the number of members who are owning and flying that plane.  To learn more about this contact Artisan Aviation.

Family memberships are available at one-half share price, so that each member of a family living in the same household can enjoy the benefits of Club membership at a reduced share price.  Family members also pay half the regular monthly fee.

When a member leaves Artisan, the Club buys back the member’s shares at the current share price.  Unlike most shared ownership arrangements, there is no requirement for the departing member to find a buyer for his/her share.  We have an upper limit of 24 club members.  Our membership has ranged from 12 to 23 members over the past few years.

To join Artisan Aviation, Inc, get more information, or arrange for a tour of our planes and hangar, please call Fred Dewey at (585) 615-5710 or message us by clicking here.  You are also welcome to attend one of our monthly meetings held the third Monday of every month at 7:30 PM in the US Airports conference room at 1265 Scottsville Road on the south side of KROC to learn more about the Club and meet our members in person.
