Flight Instructors

The best way to enjoy model aircraft when getting started is to learn how to fly correctly with one of TMAC's qualified instructors.

TMAC has appointed 3 official fixed wing aircraft flight instructors for new members & people just interested in trying the sport for the first time.

Each instructor will supply all the equipment needed for each lesson - no equipment required to learn at all.

You learn to fly on the instructor's aircraft until you are proficient. For most people this usually takes 6 - 8 lessons.

Once you have mastered the basics and are ready to join TMAC, your instructor will guide you through selecting the right aircraft and help with correct setup for your first maiden flight as a proficient probationary pilot.

See the article of Proficiency test instructions & test form for more information. Please download the correct form from the TMAC publication page to bring along for your test with one of our club instructors below.

Our instructors will continue to help you with advice on type of aircraft, transmitters etc as you progress through to your next aircraft & beyond .

Don't forget to check out the links page for your nearest hobby store for all your hobby needs. Support those who support TMAC. Without your support these stores can't support us.
