It is essential that all pilots operate their R/C model aircraft in a safe and competent manner. When this skill level is achieved and demonstrated, student pilots receive their “Wings” – at which time they can fly without the aid of an instructor.

Student pilots must fly under the guidance of an instructor until they demonstrate the ability to independently fly a model aircraft safely and with a reasonable degree of control. There should be no doubt that in the case of an emergency, the pilot could land or save the plane without causing injury to persons or damage to property.

Check the Flight Training Guide for more information.

The first known photograph of a Soo Modeller receiving their “Wings” dates from way back in 1979 – and is of none other than club prez Craig Knight.
