One club member stated that I must be rich to be able to go to Dave Scott’s flight school, but as I see it, I’m saving money by going to the flight school.

Big day yesterday. Two guys in the OFC took me up for my wings test and I passed! I'm on my own, thanks to your splendid instruction. My wife thinks the 1st US RC Flight School was the best investment I ever made.
Doug Crowne. St. Agatha, ONT
One of the most important things I took away from the school is the need to do an after flight analysis to decide where I can improve. You are an excellent teacher. Very competent, very professional, and very enthusiastic. You made the somewhat arduous task of learning to fly fun.
Joe Thompson. Palm City, FL
I want to tell you that coming to the school was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I've been upgrading my adult education, yet I never had an instructor who so clearly conveyed the lessons to the students as effectively as you. The way you built the training made it easy. Your true concern and support for how well I did gave me a confidence I still have today and you would be proud of how well I've applied your teaching.

After your course on my second flight, it was very windy. The best flyers had stopped flying and there I was with my Goldberg. When I brought it back down, under control, only a few feet in from me, you could tell their amazement. I walked away from the field with a great feeling of satisfaction that I am on my way to mastering this art of flying, and will be able to share it with my boys, and I will be able to teach them correctly.
Dan Reardan. Washington, DC
I flew yesterday, but on take off a line of squalls came through creating turbulence. The plane performed all sorts of gyrations on its own at low altitude. Heard David's voice, neutralize and level wings! IT WORKS! Completed circuit and arrived safely. Thanks David, your system really works. I learned so much and continue to learn as I reread the manual which reinforces what you taught us.

There seems to be a great deal of debate about whether people should have to pay for R/C instruction. As far as I'm concerned, if it gets more flyers in the sky and they have the cash to pay, then why should anyone care? Regardless, they have a good site and offer a step-by-step ground school there, which contains some excellent lesson plans and graphics that can be useful to any instructor or beginner.

I learned more after the first two flights at your school than I had in three years at my club.
Neil Reynolds. Peterboroug, ONT
I am pleased to announce that after flight school I went to the field and flew four solo flights. The club instructors were amazed as to how I could do such landings. I know it would have taken me years of club instruction to have advanced to where I am. Your school is invaluable for struggling pilots-to-be, like myself, whose time is very important and solo flight is the ultimate goal.
Tony Graham. Jasper, AL
I cannot express how much you've helped me gain confidence. That first day when you had me fly in 20 mph winds, I would not have believed it unless I had tried it myself! Your training has helped me to be better prepared to fly successfully on my home field.
Michael Anthony. Naperville, IL
First I want to say, what a joy it was to be one of your students. I still can't stop telling people what a wonderful learning experience you have put together for the RC student.
Ed Bleske. Pewaukee, WI
You are a great instructor and the school you run is the best. I now have the confidence to take my plane out and fly by myself.
Eddie Lord. Sheffield, MA
Thank you for developing all the training aids and the school itself. Your school has gotten me off the ground in the right way.
Paul Moore. Plymouth, MN
I just wanted to let you know again how much I enjoyed the aerobatics class. You certainly were right in that it met or exceeded every expectation. I was amazed at how well my Ultra sport flew once I returned from the school -- somebody must have switched planes on me while I was gone. I notice steady improvements each time I fly and this is something I just wasn't experiencing prior to your courses. Thanks again Dave!
Daniel Hammon. Bountiful, UT
Each time I take one of your courses I think I've learned just about all there is to learn. Then, you show me a whole new level of flying. I continue to be amazed by your expert tutelage.
Ed Smetak. Kingwood,TX
My time in Shawano in the past two years has been invaluable, and I cannot thank you enough for what you have taught me.
Bob Bortman. Greenfield, WI
You have provided the basis from which I have been able to move ahead and perfect what you so skillfully and patiently taught me. You have an amazing way of teaching the basics and also stressing the finer points to achieve perfection without making it a grueling task. In addition to flying, the information you provided on equipment selection, setups, and what works would take years of experimenting to achieve.
Jim Hahn. Birnamwood, WI
I just wanted to thank you for a superb 4 days in the Precision Aerobatics class, and for once again exceeding my expectations in R/C flying. With your tenants as our basics, I was amazed at how quickly Jim and I learned to use the rudder control! It was simply a matter of 'trusting your control inputs' and not getting behind the airplane and reacting to it. Thanks again for a great, repeatable learning methodology that has taken me light years ahead of my local Club R/C colleagues!
Jeff Wallach. Dallas, TX
It was a wonderful week, filled with more accomplishment Than I could have imagined. I now have a repertoire to practice and master that will keep my flying days full for many years.
Doug Crowne. St. Agatha, ONT
I now have a solid foundation to build on step by step. I understand that more intricate maneuvers are simply an extension of good basic maneuvers strung together. The school has allowed me to become an R/C pilot that can perform a complete routine with confidence and competence. The school has been invaluable.
Melvin Johnston. Manitoba, CAN
I can honestly say that I have never been more satisfied with any investment of my time, energy and money than I am with the training provided by your school. In my analysis, the return on investment will continue to accrue for as long as I am active in the sport. Read Bob's Full Report
Bob Kohler. Cedarburg, WI
Because of the organization of the material, tailoring the lessons to the pupils needs and your constant input, my learning curve rose steadily and left me with the confidence and complete satisfaction that I could master the aerobatics routine at my home flying field.
Jim Kropelin. Lewiston, NY
It was a great course. I made more progress in the 10 months after attending your sport aerobatics school than I had in the previous 5 years.
Dan Hammon. Bountiful, UT
The school was without doubt the finest training seminar or short course I've ever taken. I've reset my airplanes' throws, centers of gravity and trims, with my first real understanding of their relationships to the plane and my skill level due to your instruction. Those 4 days rejuvenated my interest and desire to improve. You are an incredible teacher, who mixes the right amount of enthusiasm with an enormous knowledge of flight.
Herb Carpenter. Plattsburgh, NY
Now when flyers hear that I have been to aerobatic flight school they always ask if it helped or if it was worthwhile. I cannot be more positive about my experience to other flyers. There was no other way for me to advance my skills so quickly. I am not sure any amount of time would have helped this much. The smoothness of my flights is better. My flying is improving and I am having more fun flying aerobatics than ever.
Ken Weddell. Fremont, MI
Each time I attend the school I'm even more impressed by how clearly you organize the lessons and how easy you make it to learn. How the maneuvers were flown seemed to be a closely guarded secret in the sport before I came to your school. Now, thanks to you, I feel I have the foundation to do just about anything with practice. Keep up the good work.
Robert Yeager. Casper, WY
What a difference a little flight instruction makes!! Even my landings were better!! It is such a pleasure to fly the various maneuvers with competence. The school decals are going on my planes ASAP.
