you want to be an R/C Pilot? Well you're in the
right place! RC Sport Flyers has a great group of
very experienced and patient pilots who are willing
to help you learn how to fly - for free! You will
receive instruction on proper field entry/exit,
frequency control, courtesy, and safe operations of
our flying site. You will be shown how to do a
preflight inspection of your plane and basic engine
operations. One of our instructors will test fly
your plane for the first time before the flight
training starts. Basic flight training includes
straight & level flight, level turns, climb &
descent, approach, go around, take off and landing.
Most of what you learn will come from the examples
given to you by your instructor and practice,
Our instructors are at the field
for Open Training Night every Tuesday and Thursday
evening during the summer months of mid-April
through mid-October. All of the instructors are there because they
enjoy working with new pilots (and old, returning pilots)
and they want to help you learn, so don't be afraid
to ask for help!

plane, engine, transmitters, batteries, chargers,
