R.C. Flight Instruction

If you are new to the RC community, then flight training is probably one of your questions.

Flight training is provided free of charge to members as well as visitors who would like to give it a try. The club has 2 aircraft that are used exclusively for flight training, so even if you don’t have an airplane just yet, you can still learn to fly on one of ours! Experienced R.C. instructors will help you develop your skills in a safe step by step process. Visitors are always welcome, so join in the fun and take an introductory flight at the club's field.

WHEN??

    Flight training is conducted every Wednesday afternoon from May to October from 5:30pm until dark. But don’t let that be the only time you fly. Our instructors love this hobby and fly whenever they can, especially the weekends. Just contact one of our instructors here and they would be more than happy to set up a date and time for you to come out and get some free instruction.
    Our flight instructors volunteer their time to provide you with the training you need. We use “buddy boxes” to make flight training easier.

    HELICOPTER For helicopter students we offer heli training every Monday afternoon from May to October from 5:30pm until dark.


    A “buddy box” is second transmitter that is attached by a special cable to the first transmitter that the instructor always has in his hands. When he presses a button on the radio, the controls are transferred to the student who is flying on the second transmitter. If there is ever a problem, the instructor simply takes his finger off the button thus returning control to him

    So come out and join us!!

    Aircraft Line-up: 
    These are the club owned aircraft that are avialble for members and guests to use
    1) Sig Kadet LT40:
    This is probably the best trainer avialble for beginners. Club members who have yet to acquire thier own aircraft and visitors are welcome to use the club aircraft

    2)Alpha 40:

    An equally capable flier, the ALpha 40 has the same gentle flight charachteristics of the Kadet LT 40. This newest edition to our fleet was in the summer of 2011

    3)Kadet Senor
    This gentle giant is the perfect plane for our youngest members learning to fly, or the older members that need a little more time to think while they are flying. It flies so easy, most members that try this can master the basics in just one lesson
