Do you want to take the first step in becoming a model aircraft remote (R/C) control pilot? This is a step in the right direction, like 300 cadets have already done in 2012 - 2015. Are you already flying R/C and want to become a better RC pilot? We will be flying tricycle landing gear and Taildragger type aircraft.
Aspiring R/C pilots will receive formal AMA ground instruction and will fly with an AMA flight instructor/pilot. Through the use of buddy-boxes and hobby industry recognized basic and intermediate level model aircraft, you will learn from the best instructors. Many cadets will not only solo, but move on to complete higher levels of competency at this academy!
The learning environment is specially designed for cadets, and the low instructor to student ratio of 6:1 provides opportunities for mentoring and individual attention. Participants in the Model Aircraft & Remote Control (MARC)
We recommend you have a current Academy Model Aeronautics (AMA) 2015 membership card prior to attending the MARC flight academy. Youth membership cards are free on the AMA Education website, and it takes about 2 weeks to receive your card after registration. This is not an encampment, but we will wear BDU uniforms, have morning/evening formations and pay strict attention to customs/courtesies and the Cadet Protection Program (CPPT). In the evening we will build RC planes so you also learn how to assemble and fix a plane, in case you return home and wrap your plane around a tree or sign post. If it cannot be fixed, you will know how to strip it of key parts off and how to build another replacement plane.
We have a good time, and we have cadets returning for their second, third and forth MARC RC Flight Academy. We are looking forward to meeting you as well.
