Pilot Proficiency

Our goal as a club is to make flying available, affordable and ensure safety by facilitating ongoing flight proficiency and safety training for all our members. Whether you are a pilot, rusty pilot, or student pilot, ongoing training is key to proficiency and overall safe flying.

Member pilots and CFI's can assist with safety flights, checkouts, Discovery flights, flight reviews and more.

Plus, check out the new flight simulator in the Reedsburg Airport Main terminal building.


Instrument Training

You can fly in day or night time 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. With IFR training, you can fly through and above clouds, at night time, and more.

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 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 Plane in the World

The RAFC has selected the #1 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
