CRUFC Club Information

If you are are interested in low cost flying and fun…. then the CRUFC may be just for you. We are an active group of people who meet regularly to fly together and of course socialize together. If you are interested in purchasing an airplane or better yet “building” your own airplane, the club has multiple resources to help you.Perhaps you’ve always wanted to learn how to fly? Well… we have contacts to help you with that also. All in all, the CRUFC is a fun place to be and we are always looking towards new adventure’s on the horizon!
