Learning to fly RC aircraft;

So maybe you have read some modeling magazines, talked with a friend who flies, and are thinking R/C models might be fun! Or you have already taken the big plunge, and bought/built your first R/C model, and now need to get it in the air.

The Tri-City RC Modelers has a group of highly experienced flight instructors that are available, free of charge, to new club members for primary flight training as well as existing members that would like refresher or advanced training.

Students are encouraged to utilize as many instructors as possible during the training process. Exposure to different methods and techniques is the best way to become a skilled pilot! Students must call an instructor and arrange for lessons.

Showing up at the field and hoping an instructor will be there to help you is not a good idea. Club instructors at the field may have a full student load or another agenda for the day. Club policy (insurance driven) requires primary flight instruction be given by club designated instructors. If a member wishes to become a club instructor, contact the, Head Instructor.

Learning the ins and outs of RC flying from a seasoned, qualified RC flight instructor will ensure you become a responsible and safe pilot.
