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. Dave is a full-scale commercial pilot and champion full-scale aerobatic competitor and airshow pilot (Scott Airshows). Dave founded 1st U.S. R/C Flight School and has professionally trained more than 1700 R/C pilots during 14,000 hours of instruction. His groundbreaking flight training techniques have resulted in 98% of his primary students achieving solo in less than a week, and more than 80% of the people who take our Solo course returning to take an Aerobatics course the following season. Dave is deeply influenced by his experiences with full-scale and believes that model aircraft should be flown and instructed with the same professionalism and realism. He continues to formally instruct 70+ pilots each summer and develop training materials for all airplane and helicopter skill levels. When he isn't competing, instructing, working as an R/C contract pilot, or writing his latest book or article, Dave thrills crowds with his exciting full-scale and R/C aerobatic demonstrations at full-scale airshows and large R/C events.
