IVFC is a not-for-profit corporation, founded in 1987, by 25 pilots who together purchased a Cessna 172. Their goal was to make flying affordable for a greater number of people in the LaSalle County area. Since then the club has grown to over 45 active members and three aircraft. If you would like to fly, joining a club is the most economical way to enjoy the pleasure of flight with you and your family. By all of us sharing the cost of maintenance, storage, and insurance with others, the cost of ownership for each member is vastly reduced. Take a look at the Membership page for more information, and contact us if you are interested.
2016 Upcoming Club Events
YOUNG EAGLES (Saturday June 25th 2016)
Area young people ages 8-17 will have a chance to take to the skies for free from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. as our club along with Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter #129 and the Civil Air Patrol host a Young Eagles Flight Rally at Illinois Valley Regional Airport in Peru, Illinois.
The rally is part of the EAA Aviation Foundation’s Young Eagles Program, created to get more young people interested in aviation. Volunteer pilots have provided airplane rides to over 1.6 million young people since its inception in 1992. Our pilots at the event will also explain more about their airplanes, allowing young people to discover how airplanes work and how pilots ensure safety is the prime concern before every flight.
Following the flight, each young person will receive a certificate making them an official Young Eagle. Their name will then be entered into the “World’s Largest Logbook,” which is on permanent display at the EAA Air Adventure Museum in Oshkosh, WI.
Please download and save the following documents, which discusses the young eagles program, and also contains the participant form and waiver. Fill out the top half of the form (participant section in RED) and also sign the liability waiver page, and bring the completed copies to the rally.
