Flight Instruction 

RC FLIGHT INSTRUCTION (The fun stuff—flying!)  

The Hill Country AeroModelers offers free flight instruction to members. Members must have both current HCAM membership and current full or Junior AMA membership. The “Aeromodelers” currently have many qualified flight instructors who instruct on a voluntary basis; whose availability is governed by work and personal constraints.

Contact our Chief Flight Instructor at instructor@hillcountryrc.org to coordinate with a club instructor to begin your RC flight instruction.

 A few words of caution: We strongly urge you not to run out and buy an rc airplane and flight gear without talking with your RC flight instructor—some aircraft are not suitable for instruction and/or beginning flyers. Also, don’t try to teach yourself to fly—it gets disappointing (and expensive) really quick. And finally, we can teach you to fly, but you must give your time and effort on a regular basis to solo. Sporadic flight lessons every 3-4 weeks won’t allow you to build your RC flight skill set.
