  We offer HUGE discounts for Senior Communities

We've discovered that many seniors, kids and young adults have a real interest in planes and radio controlled flying.  In our Senior and Group FUN FLYING EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS we teach students how to fly radio controlled planes, first with ultra-realistic flight simulators on laptop computers that we can bring to your location. They are so much fun to fly that no one ever wants to stop. Many people get completely immersed in the simulator alone, and love to pass time flying planes this way.  Modern flight simulators are an experience that can be “addictive” and provide hours of fun. Most flight simulators also have an interactive component built in, which allows pilots to fly a plane with another pilot from another location flying the “Wingman” plane, or even doing dogfights with them. The simulator is a safe, fun and effective introduction to RC flying.

WHY GIVE IT A TRY?

• Small groups with individualized attention

• Sharpen reflexes, fine motor skills, and mental acuity

• Elevates well-being, positive mood and social functioning

• Find a new hobby and interest to get more zest out of life

• We make “learning to fly" an interesting and fun game

ONE DAY BEGINNER FLYING WORKSHOP
(2 person minimum, similar flight level or email here for individual)

 
Price: $265.00 (plus tax)
Want to get your wings on in the shortest time possible? In our one day “INTRODUCTION TO RC FLYING” course, you’ll learn the operation of the transmitter and plane and our unique method of achieving true control of an RC plane. You’ll get hands on simulator training and you’ll receive valuable buddy box airtime with an instructor on a HawkSky, our recommended starter plane. You’ll go home with a proven lesson plan for simulator and plane that’s designed to get you in control of a plane fast, so you can go out to the field and fly with confidence! Take your lesson NOW, practice on the simulator and be prepared to fly!

 

ONE DAY BEGINNER INTRODUCTION TO
THE WORLD OF RC AIRPLANES

(2 person minimum, similar flight level or email here for individual)

 
Price: $265.00 (plus tax) 
A basic "how to" class covering plane selection, motor selection, electronics selection, and costs. Find out the answers to all of the questions that you wished you knew the answer to, but didn't think to ask. Learn about Transmitters and Receivers, motors, ESC's, props, different models of airplanes, flying conditions, what to bring to the field, what to do when you get to the field and more. 

 

ONE DAY INTERMEDIATE FLYING WORKSHOP
(2 person minimum, similar flight level or email here for individual)

 
Price: $265.00 (plus tax)
Ready to progress past flying a racetrack circuit? You can learn to sling a fighter around the way that they were designed to perform!  We’ll get you started on aggressive plane handling, with simulator and buddy box airtime. Small classes will give you lots of instructor time, and you’ll go home with a few maneuvers added to your repertoire, and a lesson plan that will get you WAY on the road to being a fighter jock. After you’ve mastered this type of plane handling, learning “airshow” routines will be a piece of cake!

 

ONE DAY ADVANCED FLYING WORKSHOP
(2 person minimum, similar flight level or email here for individual)

 
Price: $265.00 (plus tax)
For the pilot who is already doing wheels down landings and some aerobatics. In this class, we teach advanced aerobatic flying, and teach you "practice plans"- things to do when you get home from class to vastly improve your plane handling ability. As you might imagine, "combat" flying assumes that you can successfuly stay on the tail of a pilot who's trying very hard to get away from you.  After learning these tips and tricks, you'll be able to handle your mount with assurance and skill. Strap yourself in- it's bound to get hairy!

TWO DAY FLYING WORKSHOP
(2 person minimum, similar flight level or email here for individual)
 
Price: $510.00 (plus tax) 
Same GREAT workshop as the One Day, but with MORE time to get in more tips and flying practice.

 

ONE DAY REINFORCE/REPAIR WORKSHOP
(2 person minimum, similar flight level or email here for individual)
Price: $265.00 (plus tax)
•  Learn proven design tips and shop techniques from the actual World’s Leading Authority on reinforcing foam planes. (Since we’ve been designing and testing reinforcement for 4 years full time and nobody else has even opened a shop yet – that’s actually true!)

•  We’ll show you the places all planes love to break, and the best ways to reinforce them

 

 TWO DAY REINFORCE/REPAIR WORKSHOP
(2 person minimum, similar flight level or email here for individual)
Price: $510.00 (plus tax)

Wouldn’t you love to make your planes really hard to break? You can get the benefit of our years of shop experience designing and installing Carbon Fiber and plastic reinforcement on foamies that will make them handle better, absorb four times more “G” stress from hard maneuvering, and reduce (or even eliminate!) damage from many crashes. Our current HawkFighter designs regularly survive most 50MPH crashes intact, and ready to re-launch. Our “prop in front” designs also absorb nearly as much impact stress, although there are non-foam components out front that can be damaged (the prop, for starters). We’ll save you several years of testing and evaluating what works and what doesn’t.  What’s the benefit? First, “fun insurance”- you get to stay at the field and keep flying after a mishap that would have broken an un-reinforced plane. Second- the savings! Save the money you’d spend on replacement parts, and the time lost repairing them at the field. And every time your plane gets saved from total destruction, you just saved the entire cost of the plane. If you have some experience in this, you’ll be able to add all this up pretty easily. Of the last 83 planes we reinforced for our videos, 80 are still flying- after living through all the severe crashes you’ll see when you watch them. Almost NO money spent on replacing planes!
