Learn to Fly - Free!

Free RC Flying Lessons

     The Introductory Pilot Program is free to the trainee. It gives the beginning pilot an opportunity to learn how to fly using a club-supplied airplane and transmitter.
     The instructor's transmitter has full control of the aircraft but at any time, with the flip of a switch, allows the trainee to pilot the airplane with a second transmitter.
     It's a great way to learn about model airplanes while getting hands-on flying experience.
     For more information, contact the Head Flight Instructor.
