I've attended numerous institutions of higher learning and I can say that based on the program you have developed and the way you present it and your concern for the students' success you are the best teacher I have ever had!
Dr. Hubert Aeaton. Wilmington, NC
The basic aerobatic course served as a great foundation for the future. It's been noticed at the club that I now fly "with purpose" and not just to burn fuel. Because of your instruction and insight, my flying this season has improved by leaps and bounds.
Howard Kelley. Montgomery, MA
I've heard club members ask why would anyone pay for RC flight training when he can be taught in his club for free? I have attended several clubs and have not seen anything that resembles the professionalism, amount of thought, enthusiasm, and the personal attention that you bring to training your students.

I honestly didn’t know how you were going to exceed my expectations in the aerobatic class in comparison to the quantum leap in the basic class over a year ago, but you did. Your business card claims World Leader in R/C Flight Training--I agree and would add Premier R/C Flight School.
Jim Hahn. Bernumwood, WI
Dave has almost unlimited patience. His manner and calm reactions to any flying situation is one of the keys to the success of the students. It was well worth the investment and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to fly properly.
Brad Moss. Cleveland, OH
I needed concentrated training. So, I decided to attend the 1st US R/C Flight School in Shawano, Wisconsin. Dave has an extraordinary amount of patience and he had the ability to keep calm during all of out student flying sessions. He never appeared ruffled or irritated at our repeated mistakes.
Al Reynolds. Cheyenne, WY
I can't say enough about your class and instruction. It exceeded all my expectations.
Mike Weathers. St. Louis, MO
It's official Dave. It all came together to allow me to Solo. What a rush! I even landed the plane on the runway in front of an audience of 3 other club members. The combination of concentrated training, emphasis on fundamentals, and your infinite patience has enabled me to be successful.
Archie Paez. Jacksonville, FL
The school has been one of the best time investments I've made in years. You're very professional and structured classroom setting complimented the flying time you individually tailored to the student. You have succeeded in establishing the foundation that every pilot needs in order to be successful.
Mike Anthony. Naperville, IL
I can't thank you enough! We all were highly satisfied with your course and are still amazed at how you can tailor the instruction for each of us separately. I can't imagine that you could have made a more thorough or professional effort. I would highly recommend your course to anyone learning to fly and wanting to be a proficient pilot.
Ernest Waud. Lake Forest, IL
I would once again like to thank you for the instruction. I learned a lot and had a blast. I've got 30 flights in to date with no repairs. Money well spent! I am missing the Wisconsin winds! Flew one day in approx. 20 MPH crosswinds since I've been back. A scant breeze after the course. I will highly recommend your school to any student.
Kevin Klaus. Hardin, IL
Dave Scott, a 1st rate instructor who made all of his commands in a clear level voice which were easy to understand. I have more confidence now and I feel I really got my money's worth.
Bob Harris. Ontario, CAN
I am in total confidence that anyone that goes to your school will receive the professionalism and friendliness of the "DAS" system, helping them to achieve solo status in the shortest possible time with confidence!
William Snow. New England, CT
I got what I came for, confidence, and the correct way to fly. Don't change a thing. I think coming to Shawano and going through the school was one of my best investments in rc flying. A lot of guy's will spend a lot more on equipment, only to trash it, get disgusted, and leave the hobby, because they never had the knowledge you shared with us.
Bob Bortman. Greenfield, WI
As I participated in your program over 5 days, I honestly could not think of a single way to make your program better. You tailored a program to my specific needs, recognized the areas I needed work, helped me to confront my issues, and then directed me on to my next R/C adventure. I greatly exceeded what I thought I could possibly learn to do. Soloing the third day, doing barrel rolls, loops and Immalmanns on the fifth day was awesome!
Robert Delaurentis. San Diego, CA
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the training and how much more I got that I didn't realize until I returned to the home field. My flying is with a purpose now and since I know what I'm doing wrong, plus how to fix it. I've changed the set up on a number of my other planes that didn't seem to " fly right " and now they are more like what we trained with and are much more comfortable to control.
Your training program works as advertised and I wouldn't change a thing. (I'm actually quite thrilled about your program and very impressed with the amount of thought and work you have put into it!)
Bob Thomas. Fowlerville, MI
What a great time I had flying with you. It was truly one of those great memorable aviation experiences of my life. I can't get the grin off my face!
Elwood Woods. Dundee, IL
What a great week! I now understand the importance of certain basics. Now, thanks to your training, I know exactly what I need to do to start winning contests!
