The Tucson Radio Control Club (TRCC) provides new pilot training free of charge for all current members of the club where it teaches basic flight maneuvers and field safety.
If you are completely new to the hobby, then we suggest that you contact an instructor before purchasing any planes, radios, and flight line equipment as the instructors can give you advice on what you need to purchase.
If you should need help in setting up your airplane or test flying, there are many highly experienced club members who are more that willing to help.
Please remember that the instructors are volunteering their time to help. So it is best to make an appointment to ensure that they will be available.
See the list of instructors who are available, by appointment, to help you learn to fly.
These guidelines will be used by instructor prior to first flight/training session:
1. Field Safety Rules
2. Flight line Etiquette.
3. Frequency Board and Impound.
4. Inspection of Aircraft for Airworthiness and proper CG.
5. Starting and Adjusting Engine and Safe Operating Practices.
6. Range Checking the Radio and proper Control Action.
