Free Summer Flying Lessons

Every Thursday evening

Come out and learn about the fun hobby of remote control aviation. The Champaign County Radio Control Club offers free flying lessons to anyone interested in aviation (age 10+). It's an exhilarating time as student pilots are doing loops and rolls in a matter of weeks.

CCRCC provides everything a student pilot needs - including plane, fuel, radio gear and personal instruction (bring your own sunglasses & hat).

Lessons are conducted every Thursday evening, 5:00pm to dusk, from mid-May (5/19/16) through Mid-September (9/15/16). Training will not be held on evenings of bad weather such as rain, lightning or high winds (15+ mph).

Lessons are provided on a "first come" basis each week. Several instructors with planes will work one-on-one with students in rotation from the sign-in sheet. So, the earlier you get there the more stick time you’re likely to get.  

Computer flight simulators are also available to safely teach basic flying skills - eye/hand coordination.

The Champaign County Radio Control Club field is located on the North side of Route 150, 2 miles West of Champaign's Mattis Avenue. If you get to the cemetery/Staley Rd you went too far West.

CCRCC Lead Training Instructor at 217-417-2424
