Fancy 'flying a plane - from a field near you?

The Torbay Radio Flying Club, who fly from a field near Marldon on Ipplepen Road, are offering free taster  sessions for anyone that would like to try flying model aircraft.

The Club has more than 40 Members and has been established for over 40 years.

The members fly all types of aircraft from Gliders and warbirds right through to jets and Aerobatic planes.  For those that are interested in getting into this exciting activity an instructor will take them through a pre arranged trial session using a club aircraft with Dual controls.

After joining the club a new Pilot will be assigned an instructor to progress through the British Model Flying Association Achievement scheme so they can safely enjoy solo flight.

With the Instructors and Club trainer Aircraft the new pilot can start the journey before investing in their own equipment, this gives them time to decide which models will suit them best. A trial Flight can be arranged by contacting treasurertdrfc@gmail.com
