Learn To Fly


Flight Instruction

Working with our Member Certified Flight Instructors (CFI's) you will schedule flying time and learn to fly in a hands-on and custom one-on-one training program.

The RAFC has an affordable approach to learning to fly.  You can earn your pilot's license in just a few months, or learn to fly over a few summers.  You will learn to fly at your own pace.


Instrument Training

You can learn to 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 in pilot training after you are licensed to fly. 

Our Club plane is IFR certified.  And, with IFR Certification you can fly through and above clouds, fly at night time and more.


Introductory Lesson

You are invited to try an introductory flying lesson with a Certified Flight Instructor by appointment.  All you need is:

  • $99 - first flight fee
  • 1 hour
  • Interest in learning to fly

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 and flight training 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
