On July 2, 2009, George Kreyling, from St. Charles, IL, successfully completed1st U.S. R/C Flight School’s 4-day Intermediate Aerobatics flight training course, becoming the School’s 1300th student trained!
Here is his report
When Jeff invited me to attend your aerobatic course with him, I was a little skeptical. Conventional wisdom being "the only way to get better is to burn lots of fuel." David.....your course made a believer out of me! I never realized that I was only putting a little polish on the same old routine.
As this season comes to a close I'd like to pass along a progress report. First and foremost I now fly with a plan. Instead of simply reacting to the elements and the characteristics of the airplane, I'm incorporating the lessons you taught us into the maneuvers. Another important lesson learned was to break a maneuver down into smaller more manageable parts. I can't tell you how much this has helped. I can now do four and slow rolls, rolling left and right, starting from right side up or inverted. What a break through!
In closing, I just wanted to say thank you. As a result of your course, I am doing stuff I never thought I would be able to do. You have a gift for making the complicated possible. Thanks again for making my hobby more enjoyable.
