Model Aircraft Remote Control Academy
Do you want to take the first step in becoming a model aircraft remote (R/C) control pilot? This is a step in the right direction. Are you already flying R/C and want to become a better RC pilot?
Aspiring R/C pilots will receive formal AMA ground instruction and will fly with an AMA flight instructor/pilot. Through the use of buddy-boxes and hobby industry recognized basic and advanced model aircraft, you will learn from the best instructors. Many cadets will not only solo, but move on to complete higher levels of competency at this academy!
The learning environment is specially designed for cadets, and the low instructor to student ratio provides opportunities for mentoring and individual attention. Participants in the Model Aircraft & Remote Control (MARC) Flight Academy will receive over 4 solid-hours of “hands on” flight time learning the basics of flying an electric model aircraft, 4-hours of ground instruction and up to 6-hours R/C flight simulator training. Evening time will be spent building various rubber powered aircraft, and an old fashioned stick and tissue catapult free-flight gliders.
