The Ram Flying Club was established in 1948 at Colorado A&M (now Colorado State University) as the Aggie Flying Club. The club officially incorporated as a nonprofit institution on January 29, 1971. The original incorporates were John A. Campbell, C. Wesley Weaver, and Arthur P. Roy who also served as officers for the club. The Ram Flying Club offered flying instruction as well as flight time for its members, who were both faculty and students. An aircraft for the club was purchased using donations and membership fees. In 1980, the insurance for the club was cancelled and it officially disbanded by 1981.
