Welcome to flight school!

Welcome to this series of flying lessons designed to get the novice pilot from that first flight all the way to the Bronze Wings test.
These written lessons are intended to be used whilst learning to fly your radio control aircraft with a qualified instructor. They will help you to understand what is happening at various stages during the flight and give you an idea of what will happen next during your lessons. Once all these lessons have been completed to the satisfaction of your instructor you should be confident and able to pass your bronze wings.
These lessons WILL NOT teach you to fly on your own without the aid of an instructor. To try to do so is irresponsible and dangerous!

Boomerang 60 Trainer

Definitely the most popular training aircraft at LMMAC currently, the Boomerang trainer is flown regularly by a few of our new pilots.
This robust ARTF model from Seagull is designed for a .60 size 2-stroke (although larger engines do find their way in to the huge engine bay!).  Due to it’s large size and flat bottomed wing, the Boomerang can easily be trimmed for slow and stable flight with extremely predictable and forgiving flying characteristics.  This is the trainer of choice and the model we often recommend to new pilots.
I thought I should post some pictures to celebrate the humble trainer…
