Training Program

Training Starting April 19 2021

Instruction  is available for GCRCC members on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 until dark.  We're happy to get you started as you apply for membership, just bring your AMA card.

This Season we are going to try something different in the way we run the training program. Training will still take place Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30 until we run out of light. We have had many nights the past few seasons where we have 2 or 3 instructors show up to the field, but we do not have any students attend. My idea to help remedy this would be to have the students call me to let me know that they plan to be at training that night, so that I can alert the instructors assigned to that night to be at the field.

As of right now, Training is planned to begin April 19th, however with all the COVID-19 chaos going on, that may change. If we do have to push training off I will do my best to keep everyone informed in a timely manner. Please contact me via email or via phone (513-678-7692) if you have any questions, or to confirm that I have your contact information correct.

We post weather cancellations on our GCRCC Instruction Facebook page. Here is the 2021 instructor schedule.

The GCRCC Training Program

GCRCC has a proud tradition of providing excellent training in flying fixed wing RC aircraft.  It consists of several components:

  • Experienced instructors and ground crew dedicated to your success

  • A formal training plan with clear steps leading to mastery

  • A free Student Handbook

  • Buddy boxes for Futaba and JR radios

  • Two weekly training sessions from April through September on Monday and Wednesday evenings--field is closed to other flyers

Our training program is designed for trainer glow powered model aircraft in the popular .40-.60 size range.  If you have some other type of plane or engine, please discuss it with Greg.
