*****Charter Members*****

The two active Charter Members, Bernie Drier and Pat Brown, have turned over the governing

of the club and its activities to the elected Club Officers in accordance with the updated Marion

RC Flyers Constitution. Each of the Six Charter Members contributed a $1000 to the club to

help it get started. Charter Members are considered to be lifetime members and did not need to

pay dues on an annual basis. However, all of the Charter Members continued to pay annual

dues in support of the club. Bernie Drier and Pat Brown will always be the club historians. To

learn more about how we have such a fine field and facilities ask Bernie or Pat. We would like

to express our gratitude to the Charter Members for their support and guidance when setting

up the club for success.

Airplane Instruction

Skip Gram 273-2748 Airplane Instruction
  • If using your own airplane for flight lessons you should make sure your radio equipment has been charged and the switches are in the off position before you arrive at the field. If you do not own your own airplane you can use the club training aircraft at no charge to you.
  • When you arrive at the field ask for your instructor. He will provide direction on where and how to set up the airplane for instruction.
  • Pay attention to what your instructor has to say and show you. He will show you proper flying field procedures and etiquette. You can learn by observing how pilots set up and fly their aircraft.
  • Relax and take your time. If you feel tired or worn out call it a day and schedule a lesson for another day. When learning to fly it may take more lessons than expected.
  • When your instructor says you are ready you will complete a check flight, where you will be asked to do three takeoffs and landings, demonstrate the correct pattern and flying field etiquette. After successful completion you will then be considered a qualified R/C Pilot and allowed to fly solo without an instructor.
  • You can request additional lessons at any time. These can include aerobatic maneuvers.
