Are you interested in learning to fly?  There is no cost to you.  We supply the plane, fuel, radios, everything.  All you supply is a good attitude the the need to have fun!  Couple of options: 

 

1. Check the "Calendar" page for our Trainer Days, one in each of June, July and August

 OR 

2. Contact one of the following instructors directly for a one-on-one session.  Please give the instructor a 6 or 7 day notice.


(Instructors to be posted in April)

OR

Stop out at the field on Wednesday evenings for training sessions with one of our instructors.  (Watch here for when this option starts in Spring 2016)


For any of these options, you may bring your own plane and equipment.  For beginners, the instructor will make a recommendation as to using ours or your equipment and plane.  If you feel the need to acquire an aircraft before your session, to make a good purchase, see John at HobbyTown USA on Alpine south of Riverside.
