<%--- HIDE UNTIL NEXT SIGNUP ----------------------------------------

To the unlucky ones

We thank everyone who came to the signup meeting. As of October 10, 2016, we have selected new students using a lottery system. Students who were selected have already been informed. As usual there was some turnover early on and a few people on the wait list got in this way. Unfortunately, no more people will be able to join from now on.

Those who were not lucky at the lottery had the option to sign up to be on the wait list in case any students drop out. People on the wait list has also been informed - check your email inbox! There is usually some turnover early on. To get in from this wait list, make sure to attend the ground school (see front page).

Next chance to join the club is in September 2018

The next round of sign ups for new pilot students will be announced on this website in Aug/Sept 2018. Signup happens once a year, typically in early September (after the Labor Day weekend), and only in person. As a rough guide, see previous years below - the academic year 2017/2018 was an outlier.
