About the Instructor/Author: Dave Scott grew up in Oshkosh, Wisconsin - home of the Experimental Aircraft Association and the world's largest sport aviation convention and airshow. He began flying R/C at the age of 9 and has accumulated over 12,000 hours of flying experience. He has worked in the development of several full-scale aircraft and has designed nearly 50 radio control planes. He’s also a full-scale aerobatic competitor and airshow pilot. Dave founded 1st U.S. R/C Flight School and has professionally trained more than 1500 R/C pilots during 14,000 hours of instruction. His ground breaking flight training techniques have resulted in 98% of his primary students achieving solo in less than a week, and 100% of his aerobatic students achieving in only days what traditionally takes years. Dave is deeply influenced by his experiences with full-scale and believes that model airplanes should be flown and instructed with the same professionalism and realism. He continues to formally instruct 60 people each summer and develop training materials for all levels of flying. When he isn't competing, writing his latest book, or instructing, Dave thrills crowds with exciting R/C aerobatic demonstrations at full-scale airshows and large R/C events.
PHASE 1: The objective of 1st U.S. R/C Flight School is to provide an environment in which to develop, codify, and deliver new standards of systematic radio control flight training programs at all skill levels.
And to be recognized for our flight training accomplishments as the Leader, the Best; and providing a positive opportunity for those committed to learning in the sport.
PHASE 2: Develop unprecedented results-based instructional resources for every pilot, student, and instructor to utilize.
We will continue to take responsibility for how well each student performs.
The Flight School will be designed around what works best for the student, combined with an enthusiasm and life-long study of aviation and teaching.
We will accomplish our goals while offering innovative services and resources beneficial to fostering the growth of radio control model aviation, the greatest sport/hobby on earth!
