Earn your wings!

Why struggle week after week at the flying field trying to get into the air and stay in the air? With Bob’s one-on-one instruction, you can arrange a class to suit your needs.

Drive down for a day’s instruction at our on-site flying field. If you want to improve your rotor wing skills, Bob will work with you using our Horizon Hobby’s JR equipment. All models, radios, etc. are provided. All you bring is yourself. Complimentary lunch provided.

Or come for a full course, as many days as you like for rotor wing. As with the one-day program, everything is included. All models, radios, etc. provided.

Instruction with buddy box system

You get one-on-one instruction with a buddy box. You will begin with time on Real Flight computer simulator, go on to radio setup and ground school, and in a short time get your thumbs on the controls!

In addition to teaching those who are in the hobby, Bob works with U.S. and international military and research groups to train pilots for UAV applications. Here he is with members of the Czech Army Special Forces.
