New to R/C Flying

It's easier than you think! A quick email or phone call may be the first order of business. Talking with one of our club officers, or instructors can provide allot of helpful information on what would be a good first airplane, or to discuss your expectations of flying R/C models. Many airplanes are not suitable for learning, and are intended for pilots with advanced skill levels.

The group owns and maintains its own training aircraft. This is used for training flights, intro flights and demonstrations. Intro flights are geared to your specific skill level and needs. Those new to R/C flying can experience the sport in total confidence. This is accomplished through a special link system allowing the student to fly while the instructor maintains ultimate control, thus preventing a crash.

Bend Aero Modelers has R/C instructors available to help you explore the hobby for the first time, and for those wishing to expand their modeling experience all the way up to more advanced airplanes. We all had to start somewhere and the opportunity may never be better! Call or write today to schedule your intro flight or attaned one of our club meetings.

Bend Aero Modelers is dedicated to the promotion of R/C model aircraft. While some of our members have interests that go way beyond aircraft, varying from cars, rockets, boats, and even model trains, our specific purpose is the promotion of safe operation of R/C aircraft.
