R/C is a rewarding hobby for both young and old, male and female. However, it is not something that you should try to learn on your own. To successfully and safely learn how to fly a R/C plane it is best to seek out a qualified instructor. The best place to do that is with an AMA chartered club that flies R/C planes. A club offers more than just instruction. You will be able to draw on a wealth of information from members that been flying for years. They will provide you with technical help on setting up your model and give you some good advice on what products work and which ones are less desirable. Our club has many fun activities throughout the flying season that will not only entertain you but also help you become a more proficient pilot.
At LCRC, we a beautiful grass runway 400' x 100' and approximately 40 acres surrounding it that are clear of obstacles. We have several qualified instructors that will work with you through our structured training program. All it takes is to get your AMA membership and join the club!
Considering the time and money that you may have already invested in a new plane it only makes sense to join a club and get help learning to fly it. Many that try to learn on their own get frustrated and give up. Getting some quality instruction will help you get the most out of your investment.
Learning to fly safely and proficiently will not happen overnight. It will take some time and effort on the student's part. Everyone progresses at a different rate so there is no set amount of time that it will take to learn to fly. Our instructors will work with you either evenings or weekends based on their availability. Remember - they are donating their time so work around their schedules.
If you haven't bought anything yet and you just want to feel it out, we do offer a one time trial flight on one of the clubs training aircraft. An instructor will get the plane up in the air and let you take control on a buddy box and let you experience the fun. Contact one of the club officers for further details.
