Learning to Fly
So you're interested in learning to fly, great choice, this is a fun and exciting hobby! RC Flight is a multi-faceted hobby. There are numerous types of aircraft and there is an opportunity to get involved in as much complexity as you desire all the way from designing and building your own aircraft to simply assembling an almost ready-to-fly aircraft. Capital City Flyers have an active Wings Training Program and a number of qualified instructors to help people get airborne safely.In order to learn to fly at CCF you need:
1. A valid current MAAC membership (the MAAC website is here: www.maac.ca )
2. A club membership with CCF
3. A trainer aircraft. There are a number of good ARF (almost ready to fly) trainers available for a reasonable price. Before you buy and airplane it is important for you to talk to the persons involved with teaching you to fly. Too many times money was spent on an airplane that was not appropriate for training and another one was needed to be purchased with a great deal of money lost.
It is highly recommended that you drop by the field on Saturdays and Sundays and during many weekdays to speak with the club members and get some advice before getting started.
