NIFA membership is not restricted to only those institutions that have aviation education programs. A flight club from a school which does not have any aviation training programs at all can qualify for membership under the NIFA Bylaws. However, the club must be recognized as an official student organization of the institution. Local Fixed Base Operators (FBOs) at airports where such schools are located can usually tell you who to contact from the club.
Beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, flight team NIFA membership dues are a two-part fee system. The School Membership fee will confer membership upon the school, advisor, and all coaches and non-competing students for the entire calendar/school year, July 1 to June 30. Also, in order to participate in any NIFA event, students must become Student Members of NIFA prior to the event. If you are paying membership fees on behalf of a student or students, use the Voucher for Student Membership. (It’s like a gift certificate.) Purchase as many membership vouchers as you need for your students and during the checkout process you’ll email them each a coupon code that they’ll each redeem for their own membership.
If you’re a new school to NIFA, welcome! Send us an email about your interest (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll get you set up in the system. You’ll then choose the School Membership below. This application and payment of dues should be made by the Advisor, the faculty advisor or other advisor recognized by their institution as the official representative for their team. Then, your students will be able to choose their school affiliation when they become members, or you’ll be able to purchase their membership using the Voucher for Student Membership.
School Membership fees are due by Sept 1 each year.
