Learn to Fly

Learning to fly Radio-controlled Aircraft at BMAC

Learning to fly radio-controlled (RC) model aircraft can be fraught with difficulties when you try to learn on your own.
However; learning to fly (RC) model aircraft alongside one of BMAC‘s fully qualified flying instructors is an easy, safe and enjoy able process.  Our Flying Instructors will help you select a suitable first model and arrange a free course of flying lessons using the club’s dedicated Boomerang trainer aircraft or you can use your own trainer aircraft.

Our instructors use RC transmitters capable of supporting dual-control cable or WiFi connection between the instructor’s transmitter and your transmitter, commonly known as the buddy-box method.
