Flight Training

We welcome beginners and try to help all newcomers to model flying. If you are just getting started you should come up and visit us as early in the process as possible. We can give advice on what to buy and what to avoid, answer any questions you have while building or assembling your model, check out your completed model, test fly and trim your model and start teaching you how to fly it.

Learning to fly a model on your own can be a frustrating and expensive experience. Don’t let it be! Come and join the group and we will show you how to fly safely and responsibly. If possible, we will teach you on a “buddy box” system where an experienced pilot can take control immediately at the touch of a button if you are in trouble.

The group supports the Scottish Aeromodellers Association(SAA) flight training scheme and you will initially be trained to “Bronze” standard before being allowed to fly solo.

Importantly, by joining the group you will need Aeromodellers Insurance wither this is through the Scottish Aeromodellers Association or BMFA whichever you choose.
