Learn to Fly!

trainerThe Flagstaff Flyers are eager and willing to teach anyone how to fly. We have experienced trainers available to help from your first flight until you solo. With our ‘buddy’ system we are able to teach you how to take off, control the plane in flight, and land. If at any time the instructor feels that you are not in control of the aircraft, he has the ability to take over control of the plane which will probably avoid a crash.

Interested in trying first? The club maintains a trainer plane and one of our instructors will buddy you up for a one time fight lasting as much as 10 minutes. This lets you get a feel for the fun and excitement of R/C flying.

You will also find the Club helpful in getting started in the hobby by assisting you in choosing an appropriate first plane and associated equipment to get in the air, as well as making all that equipment work together.

Monthly Meetings

We hold our meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. The current meeting location is at the Subway Cafe, 2018 E Butler Ave, Flagstaff, AZ 86004. Meeting's begin at 6:30pm. The meetings consist of general business usually followed by a Show and Tell. Visitor’s are always welcome!
