Welcome to RC Flight Training
Last Up Dated 17/12/2014
December, the month of BBQ's and Christmas break ups. Ours is no different with Steve running a BBQ and fun flying day on the 20th of December. We are all pitching a $10 or so to cover the cost of some food and drinks.
The container is nearly finished on the outside with green bringing the in colour. Matt has donated a couple of great sturdy tables and with some chairs arriving shortly what could be better.
Well the grounds and runway of course, these are now in better condition than ever before. The roller did a great job with the taxiways now allowing smooth taxing out to the runway.
Thanks to all those that have helped make this happen.
The main purpose for RC Flight Training will not be lost in red tape and power games. We are all there to fly for our own enjoyment and that's what we do.
To this end I personally don't get to fly my own aircraft very often but have the pleasure of teaching a wide range of students and flying there aircraft. The pleasure given to the new students when their pride and joy is finally airborne is priceless. We all know that's when the the hard work starts but at least the journey has begun.
Look at Kira's smile in the photo below - another happy student.
During the upgrades the airfield got some attention as well - Peter looked after the roller and ran round smoothing out the bumps from the runway, taxiway and flight line.
We have short cut the grass runway and mowed all the long grass.
We welcome existing pilots to join in the fun with us and sign up for membership. The membership is based on an annual fee and you are supplied with a gate key. The field is yours to use 365 days a year. Onsite power is available for charging batteries.
Our flying site is well over 450 acres and we cater for the following.
No noise restrictions are in place, but wise to use some sort of muffler.
We know that our teaching is very formal, based on full size aircraft training, but we believe its produces the very best rc pilots. It lays a very strong foundation to allow the pilots to progress onto the other disciplines of flying.
The runway becomes Hugh with practice and we lay the challenge to our pilots to carry out 5 touch and goes in a row on the concrete runway. If you miss on one your score resets a zero and you start all over again.
One happy young lady, well done Kira
