Pilot Training

It has been said that the Arvada Associated Modelers is a goal oriented club.  One of our primary goals is to introduce new folks to the fun and enjoyment of safely flying model airplanes and helicopters.

To reach this goal, we have developed a formal training program which takes place at our East Field every Thursday night 4pm until dark during the summer months (first Thursday of May through the last Thursday of September (weather permitting)). We welcome anyone interested in learning to fly RC models to come out and take an introductory flight with an Instructor on a club plane and buddy box.

We also encourage new fliers to bring their own plane so we can inspect the model for safety and airworthiness, trim it to fly straight, and help them learn the fundamentals of flying their plane with buddy boxes and cords which we supply.

Existing members are welcome as well. If you’re feeling a little rusty or need help maidening a new plane, come on out and we’ll help you. We are a flying club, and training night is all about flying. Safe fun flying!
