Flight Training is offered free of charge to any Omahawks R/C Member. Instructors are at Hawk Field regularly and are available to assist you if you request it. For your safety and that of others, new students and non-soloed pilots are required to fly with an instructor until you have been soloed through the training program.

During summer months (April through September) a structured training program is offered each Thursday evening from 6:00 to dark. Instructors are available to assist you during this time; buddy cords and buddy boxes are provided by the club as well. Sport flying that would disrupt effective training activities or prevent students from flying due to frequency conflicts are discouraged during this time. 

The Omahawks training staff has also compiled an excellent
R/C Flight Training Manual (This is a PDF file and may be opened using Adobe Acrobat Reader). This manual parallels the Flight log, used by the instructors to document the students proficiency level, and will give the student and idea of what is expected to pass each flight level. All students are encouraged to study this manual in preparation for instruction.

Since 1953, the Omahawks have provided a successful and well respected flight training program to individuals looking to embark on an exciting and rewarding hobby. If you have never flown radio controlled aircraft and have always wanted to get involved in this exciting and rewarding hobby, now is the time to get involved. Even if you do not currently own an airplane at this time, you can come out to our field and meet with our instructors and they will let you fly our club-owned airplanes to see if this hobby is right for you.
