Where Family, Friends, Flying, and Fun Meet!!!!



May 19th 2015(5pm-7pm)- Spring Airplane Wash and Wax - Come out to the airport and help clean up the planes for the summer. We'll start whenever you can get here. Usually people get here between 5:00 and 5:30, but we won't complain if you show up late. We'll throw something on the grill, so come hungry.

May 30th 2015 (PERU AIRPORT, PERU,ILLINOIS) – Area young people ages 8-17 will have a chance to take to the skies for free on May 30ths 2015, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. as the Illinois Valley Flying 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.

If you would like to participate, please download and save the following documents, which discusses the young eagles program, and also contains the participant form and waiver that must be filled out and brought to the rally.

Club Profile

IVFC is a not-for-profit corporation that was founded in 1987 by 25 members who purchased a Cessna 172.  Their goal was to make flying affordable for a greater number of people in LaSalle County.  Since then we have grown to over 45 active members and three aircraft.  We are based at Illinois Valley Regional Airport in Peru, IL.  With soaring fuel prices we have been able to keep our prices much lower than most clubs and rental companies.
