Join CCRCC at the airfield and learn to fly RC airplanes. Our instructors have trained many new pilots to fly on their own using the buddy box system and flight simulators where you are free from the burden and fear of crashing an airplane.
Every Thursday beginning May 17th (weather permitting) at 5:00PM at our airfield at 3616 Bloomington Rd, Champaign
NOTE - While it is our intention that all students be able to get multiple flights in during each training session, this is also a fluid event based on the availability of instructors on any given week, the amount of students on any given week, and dependent on aircraft not having any flight issues.
For weather updates casuing possible cancellation of that weeks training please check our Facebook page about 45 minutes before the scheduled start time https://www.facebook.com/ChampaignCountyRcClub/
