I’ve been part of the club for 4 years and loved every minute of it. The people are what makes the club so special. A friendly, kind, funny group that are equally passionate about flying and sharing experiences, stories, and lessons. CFC is truly a special place to fly, learn, or just hangout and watch planes.
