Welcome to The Flying Club at CU!
Who Are We?
The Flying Club at CU is a student organization passionate about all things aviation! We love to talk about planes, look at planes and especially, fly planes! You don't have to be a pilot to join the club, in fact if you don't have your license we'll help you get one with a welcoming community and certified flight instructor led ground schools.
If you just want to experience the thrill of taking a ride in an airplane, we also host multiple flyouts every year where we gather a bunch of planes and fly together to another airport.
Want to know more about any of this? Sign up for our e-mail list here, come to our next meeting, or jump into one of our activities posted below!
Ground School is finally LIVE! Take a 10-week private pilot written test ground school for just 70 dollars! Sign up at this link!
Our "Upcoming Events" schedule has been completely updated to include the rest of the semester. Come join us at a meeting or a flyout!
Flying Club tries to hold a general meeting and a flyout approximately once a month. These are the planned activities for the rest of the semester:
Intro to Flying Flights around the Boulder Area (KBDU) -- 4/9/2023 - 9am - 2pm
This flyout would allow individuals to get in the air for a cheaper price, and would take individuals around the Boulder area in a powered airplane or a glider for as little as $20-30 per person per flight. Flights would leave once each hour, meaning that it would only take 1-1.5 hours out of your day.
Pancakes will be provided thanks to Journeys Aviation!

Flyout to Grand Junction Airport (KGJT) Saturday 4/29/2023
This flyout would be a smaller group of airplanes traveling a spectacular sunrise flight to Grand Junction Airport! The flying club may rent multiple cars for the group to visit the natural beauty of the Grand Junction area.
This flyout is still being planned. Due to high possible prices, this flyout may be subsidized by the Flying Club at CU (FCCU).
Pizza will be provided at ALL meetings!
Club Social Tuesday, March 14th, 6:30pm at "Qué Rico! - 1855 29th St, Boulder, CO 80301
This meeting will be a social dinner for members of the flying club. Feel free to stop by and enjoy conversation and food with us!
Guest Speaker: Tuesday March 21st, 6-7pm in AERO 232
Sean Edwards is an airline pilot and alumni of CU mechanical engineering. He will be coming to speak about the road to becoming an airline pilot, including his story and advice for those interested in becoming pilots.
This is also a great opportunity to ask an airline pilot anything that you've ever wondered about the airline industry.
No signup is required, just show up!
Meeting Thursday, April 27th, 6-7pm in ECCR 151
No plans for this meeting yet. We will likely take a look back at the semester and discuss how to build the flying club even better next semester!
As with all meetings, feel free to bring ideas about what the flying club should change/do moving forward.
