 For students $600 must be placed on deposit, which will be refunded upon completion of training.   While the name includes "Club", I am including this in the Flying School Area because it is not a non-profit/not for profit organization, it's rates are higher than the typical club and they only rent to students who received their training through their school.  However, membership and dues of $29/month are required. Golden State offers a 40 hour Ground School for $455 plus books 4 times a year Jan, Apr, Jul, Oct.
