Training Details

There are several ways to learn  to fly model aircraft

For one, you can go the cheap route and buy a radio, a plane , a motor , a speed control, go slap it together
fit a battery pack and have a bash, if it crashes  "so what " and so it goes on and on, and after three or four planes you decide to give it up as a bad job. All that money wasted for nothing, the radio and bits lie in your garage. You were not succesful , Shame on you, then eventually you decide to get some help. Someone has recommended Joining a club or going to a Flight School

You see, with us, you don't even have to have a plane or a radio, and electronic goodies , neither do you have to pay out for club fees, joining fees or drive to a club and you don't know if you are going to like it after all
That's why  we have an introductory lesson, to let you get the "Feel of the controls"

If you are a highly motivated person and want to continue with the full course, we are prepared to give you credit for the intro lesson and subtract it from the full course price

Our way is highly intensive and is result driven and therefore we put a price to it. Yes, that's right, we charge for
our tuition, and in exchange you gain the knowledge and experience, and then you can decide if you want to continue with R/C planes or not. And when you buy your new outfit , we will help you to do it Right
