Each time I take one of your courses I think I've learned just about all there is to learn. Then, you show me a whole new level of flying. I continue to be amazed by your expert tutelage.

My flying is getting better and better every day. I attribute that directly to the foundation I received from your excellent training.
Ed Petterson. Export, PA
I learned more in four days with you than I could have learned by myself in four years. Thanks again for a great experience.
Bob Wertz. Lebanon, PA
My time in Shawano in the past two years has been invaluable, and I cannot thank you enough for what you have taught me.
Bob Bortman. Greenfield, WI
You have provided the basis from which I have been able to move ahead and perfect what you so skillfully and patiently taught me. Thanks to your instruction I'm able to anticipate the maneuvers and what corrections to make to do them better. I'm amazed by how quickly I’ve progressed. You have an amazing way of teaching the basics and also stressing the finer points to achieve perfection without making it a grueling task. In addition to flying, the information you provided on equipment selection, setups, and what works would take years of experimenting to achieve. You debunk the myths.
Jim Hahn. Birnamwood, WI
It was a wonderful week, filled with more accomplishment Than I could have imagined. I now have a repertoire to practice and master that will keep my flying days full for many years.
Doug Crowne. St. Agatha, ONT
I now have a solid foundation to build on step by step. I understand that more intricate maneuvers are simply an extension of good basic maneuvers strung together. The school has allowed me to become an R/C pilot that can perform a complete routine with confidence and competence. The school has been invaluable.

With hundreds of hours of dual instruction time, I was certain I had the skills to self-learn aerobatics. It was ugly to watch as myself as the "club instructor" started crashing his models while attempting what I believed were minor aerobatics. Matters became worse as my former students wanted me to teach them aerobatics. More models stated hitting the ground. I had just about given up when I saw your ad and booked a session in your aerobatic school. You will be pleased to know that back home I have put your manual and school knowledge to work. My rudder control is improving with every flight, and "yes", I'm staying ahead of the airplane. Thanks for all your help, and saving my reputation at the field.
Tony Biach. Silver Cliff, WI
I can honestly say that I have never been more satisfied with any investment of my time, energy and money than I am with the training provided by your school. In my analysis, the return on investment will continue to accrue for as long as I am active in the sport.
Bob Kohler. Cedarburg, WI
Apparently you have built a business using proper flight instruction methodology-i.e.-a SYLLABUS---something unheard of a local fields. Even contest caliber modelers can't seem to grasp the function of the rudder control in all phases of flight - including crosswind take off and landing technique. Just as in full size flying - proper instruction (making the airplane do what the PILOT wants it to do as opposed to accepting whatever the plane wants to do and sorta guiding it around) is the only way to learn consistency. Your program indicates an understanding of proper instruction. I find your program truly worthwhile and would recommend it to aspiring modelers.
Phil Sibille. Nats, Top Gun, & Masters Champion
I have a very positive impression of your school, through my experience judging some of your students in contests. Your students' performance is well above average for their experience. Much of that is the training they received from you. I've also reviewed the manuals from your school and was very pleased with the content.
Ron Lockhart. AMA Aerobatics Director & Nats Champion
Hard to believe how far I've come since the Course. I thought you were crazy when you said I would be doing a full Aresti with Loops, Cubans, Humpty Bumps, Hammer heads with rolls and Snap Rolls! Well, I found out you weren't.
James Boyden. Northwood, IA
My favorite part about attending 1st U.S. R/C Flight School is each time that I think you have taught me just about everything there is to learn about flying, you introduce me to exciting new levels of flying I didn't know existed.
Steve Sitek. Atchison, KS
1000-hours on your H9 Super Stick, wow that is a success story. Any plane that lasts 1000 hours is a great thing, but one that is used in a training school is outstanding! That is proof alone that you are a great trainer and your students receive a great benefit from your instruction. You do an awesome job, keep up the great work.
Dennis Davenport, Product Support Coordinator. Horizon Hobby
I just wanted to thank you for a superb 4 days in the Precision Aerobatics class, and for once again exceeding my expectations in R/C flying. With your tenants as our basics, I was amazed at how quickly Jim and I learned to use the rudder control! It was simply a matter of 'trusting your control inputs' and not getting behind the airplane and reacting to it. Thanks again for a great, repeatable learning methodology that has taken me light years ahead of my local Club R/C colleagues!
Jeff Wallach. Dallas, TX
Because of the organization of the material, tailoring the lessons to the pupils needs and your constant input, my learning curve rose steadily and left me with the confidence and complete satisfaction that I could master the aerobatics routine at my home flying field.
Jim Kropelin. Lewiston, NY
It was a great course. I made more progress in the 10 months after attending your sport aerobatics school than I had in the previous 5 years.
Dan Hammon. Bountiful, UT
The school was without doubt the finest training seminar or short course I've ever taken. I've reset my airplanes' throws, centers of gravity and trims, with my first real understanding of their relationships to the plane and my skill level due to your instruction. Those 4 days rejuvenated my interest and desire to improve. You are an incredible teacher, who mixes the right amount of enthusiasm with an enormous knowledge of flight.
Herb Carpenter. Plattsburgh, NY
Now when flyers hear that I have been to aerobatic flight school they always ask if it helped or if it was worthwhile. I cannot be more positive about my experience to other flyers. There was no other way for me to advance my skills so quickly. I am not sure any amount of time would have helped this much. I think differently about flying. As the flight school taught me, I no longer react to what the aircraft is doing. I anticipate what to do and control the plane. The smoothness of my flights is better. My flying is improving and I am having more fun flying aerobatics than ever.
