All JCRC members must carry current AMA membership (see AMA website ) and FAA registration as required by type of aircraft.

A PDF version of the application is available to download. Directions for submitting the application can be found on the form. Click here to download the application form. If you have any questions, contact the Treasurer or any club officer.

VIP Membership:
This is a “good will to public figures” type of membership. Examples of recipients would be the Board members of Johnson City, Congress persons, and / or the local FAA representative. Normally, this type of membership will be a non-flying member.

VIP Memberships will not receive any voting privileges.
Emeritus Membership:
This type of membership will be for individuals that recognize the proven value of an individual that brings a unique benefit to JCRC. Emeritus Members are typically non-flying, however, they are allowed to fly with assistance if deemed necessary. This membership will be automatically reviewed at the beginning of each fiscal year.
