Learn To Fly

Would you like to learn to fly RC airplanes?

Traverse Area Model Pilots Society has a great pilot training program with skilled flight instructors to help you learn to fly successfully and safely.

Pilot Training Program

T.R.A.M.P.S. gives potential students (3) free intro flights with an instructor on one of our top-of-the-line trainer airplanes. In those flights you will be shown the basics:

  • Pre-Flight
  • Aircraft controls and how they affect the aircraft
  • Aerial maneuvers
  • And more…

After you complete your free intro flights you will have the opportunity to join our club and continue your training with us, enjoying our great locations and advanced instructors.

Our instructors can also assist you in choosing a good trainer aircraft that will enable you to learn to build and fly an airplane of your own. And they can be there to help you through the safety, preflight checklist, and maiden flight of your new plane.

Upon completion of the program you will be signed off by one of our instructors giving you the opportunity to “solo” and earn your “wings”, which then allows you to use any of our fields at your leisure as a T.RA.M.P.S. member. We put our students through extensive training so after you solo you will be ready to fly safely on your own.

Training nights begin the Tuesday after Memorial Day and go through Labor Day and start around 6:00 pm.

New Students that have joined T.R.A.M.P.S. can schedule lessons with their instructor for any day or time, between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
