Pilot Proficiency

Our goal as a club is to make flying available, affordable and ensure safety by facilitating ongoing flight proficiency and training for all our members.  Member certified flight instructors and pilots are available for:

  • Flight Training
  • Safety Flights
  • Checkouts / Flight Reviews
  • Introductory Flights, and more.

Whether you are a pilot, rusty pilot, or learning to fly, pilot proficiency increases overall safe flying.


Instrument Training

You can fly in weather conditions and navigate using only instruments.  Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) training is not required, but is the natural next step after you are licensed to fly.

An Instrument rated pilot has the ability to fly thru or above clouds, or in fog, rain, dust and other low-level (IMC) weather conditions.

The RAFC's Cessna 172 Skyhawk is IFR certified.


Safety Training

The Safety Officer of the RAFC works with AOPA, EAA, FAA and local CFI's to facilitate monthly safety seminars and webinars that Members and guests may attend (typically no fee).  A few recent examples are:

  • AOPA Rusty Pilot's Seminar
  • FAA Safety Team Seminar
  • RAFC webinar: 'Weather Hazards'

See our Events Page for more safety session information.


The #1 Training Plane in the World

The RAFC has selected the #1 training plane in the world - the Cessna 172 Skyhawk - for the exclusive use of our membership.

The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is an American made, four-seat, single-engine, high wing, fixed-wing aircraft made by the Cessna Aircraft Company in Wichita, Kansas.  First flown in 1955, more 172’s have been built than any other aircraft.

The Cessna 172 is considered one of the safest and most cost-effective training planes and is still in production today.  You can learn more here: Wikipedia - Cessna 172
