The Southern Alameda County Radio Controllers have trainer airplanes and transmitters to help new RC pilots learn to fly. We have well qualified flight instructors that can teach you to fly and advise you on purchasing your first airplane to get into and enjoy the hobby.
Look at the following document for a list of SACRC members that are qualified flight instructors. Please contact them if you would like to set up your flight training. These members are volunteers and their time is valuable, so please arrive early and if you have to cancel give them a call.
