Capt rudy a.h. – rusty pilot initiator

The longing to fly will always be in a pilot. When they know how to fly a plane and feel the world’s beauty from above, I’m sure that feeling will always be attached to a pilot. That’s why, I believe of the saying, “Once a pilot, always a Pilot!”

Rusty Pilot is designed to be a forum for gathering senior pilot friends or those who have retired from anywhere, who miss flying or just hanging out and being able to fly again to feel the nostalgia of flying like the old days of flight training.

“Rusty Pilot is designed for all the senior Pilots who miss flying and passion for aviation.”

No need to worry; all aircraft and accompanying pilots at IFC have complied with existing rules, from CASR regulations to the insurance they have.

“Once a pilot, always a Pilot!” – Capt. Rudy A.H

To accommodate members who want to become pilots, the Indonesia Flying Club provides a program for hobby-based pilots by providing training to get a Sport Pilot License (SPL) certificate, and members.

With the Indonesian Flying Club’s compassion and concern for AB-initio pilots in entering their careers, we dedicate the Cessna 152 and Cessna 172 aircraft unit as a supporting facility for the program to gain flying hours and facilitate them in increasing knowledge and sharing aviation knowledge by senior pilots/pilot instructors in order to maintain AB -initio professional skills and maintain knowledge before finally becoming a commercial pilot.

Indonesia Flying Club is now present as a non-profit organization with OC 91-022.

We are here to provide access for Aviators by providing 2 (two) dedicated certified aircraft Cessna 172 / PK-IFD and Cessna 152 / PK – IFC.

“We Have the Power to Impact Our Members, and We’re Doing Something About It!”

I hope any level of professional pilots that join the Rusty Pilot Indonesia community can maintain their flight proficiencies – Capt. Esther Gayatri

Starting from a group of Aero Sport enthusiast using Experimental aircraft. Indonesia Flying Club was formed legally on April 13, 2004 by the founders with the intention of this flying club to become the home of Aero Sport enthusiast.

The founders finally decided that the Aero Sport activities should be centered in the Swayasa Hangar – Pondok Cabe. This hangar was built by several Swayasa FASI activists, coordinated by the Former Founder, Capt. Chappy Nasution who have noble purpose and great vision for the club.

Captain Esther Gayatri Saleh is the only Woman Experimental Test pilot in Indonesia and Asia.

She is one of the few woman Test pilots in the world in this decade; back in 2017, she was the only woman Experimental Test pilot in the world who flew the first flight of N219 prototype aircraft made in Indonesia as Pilot In Command (PIC).
In 2018, she flew as PIC of the N219 2nd prototype Aircraft.

She hopes any level of professional pilots that join the Rusty Pilot Indonesia community will be able to maintain their flight proficiencies.

“This program is for an old soul Aviator seeking a nostalgic flying experience with a small aircraft that they have done while studying back in flying school or an Active Professional Aviator.”
