Students must provide their own suitable trainer aircraft and appropriate ground support equipment. The club has buddy box transmitters available for Futuba or JR equipment. Although we welcome students who wish to receive help with flying Park Flyer types of airplanes, formal "Wings" testing is only conducted with eligible sized aircraft.
Eligible aircraft would be planes of generally accepted ".40 size" with wing spans of four feet or greater, weights over 3 pounds and may be gas or electric. The plane must be capable of being taxied to and from the pit area under control of the student. Hand launching is not allowed. "Foamies", aircraft smaller than described above or gliders are not suitable for wings testing.
If you are contemplating learning to fly, please consult any of our instructors before purchasing planes or equipment to ensure that what you acquire is suitable for training purposes. Larger sized trainers are generally easier to learn with and we can help you invest your money wisely to get the right trainer aircraft.
Students are encouraged to contact the Chief Flight Instructors to receive more information about the levels of training and details concerning what is required for Wings testing.
There are several commercially available Flight Simulators that are compatible with most home computers. They can be a valuable tool and help the learning curve considerably. Here are 2 examples:
