instructor will use your transmitter hard wired to the buddy box with similar controls that you will use during the training flight. If a compatible "Buddy Box" is not available training will be completed with the instructor using your radio and handing it to you when you are ready to take over the aircraft.
The instructor will initially do the take-off and climb to a safe altitude for you. He then will either hold a momentary switch when it is time for you to fly, and releases it to immediately take control back if you put the airplane into an unstable attitude or if not using a "Buddy Box" will pass you the radio and take it back to recover the aircraft. During initial training instructors will always keep your aircraft at a higher altitude to insure ample time for correction. As your abilities increase they will bring your flight lower preparing you for take-offs and landings. The instructor will also land your aircraft for you until you are sufficiently skilled to perform the take-offs and landings yourself. When your skills are sufficiently developed it will be time to take your “Wings Test” and become a pilot with open flying privileges.
Until this test has been passed, the student must have a instructor with them at the flight line while flying. There is NO COST for this training for club members.
Once a pilot has aquired their "Wings" they may fly at the club facilities without further assistace from an instructor. Club instructors are always willing to assist you If you build or aquire a new aircraft that you would like assistance with, wether to preflight inspect, give it its maiden flight or assist you in flying it until you have become comfortable with it.
