Good habits / foundation to build on
Marilyn Foli, Minneapolis Thanks for the confidence building week. I wasn't sure if I would be able to do aerobatic maneuvers but your building block teaching process and fundamentals first approach really helped me to learn quickly and see that I could become a good aerobatic pilot. This class has been a wonderful experience and your guidance has instilled a real sense of confidence that I would not have found trying to learn it at home. Darrell Decker. Harwinton, CT Thanks to your training I had a great summer going to the field each day with a specific goal. Having a practice plan made learning new stuff enjoyable and much easier to accomplish. What a difference knowing how to execute the maneuvers beforehand made on my practice. By fall I realized that you had given me something that I didn't expect - CONFIDENCE! I was no longer nervous about any aspect of flying. Thanks for a VERY enjoyable season of flying and learning. Dave Coutie. Oshawa, Canada "Your nearly 30 year effort to define 4 fundamentals and break each maneuver into its component parts and steps accelerated our learning." Calhoun Wick. 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.
Melvin Johnston. Manitoba, CAN The course totally exceeded my expectations, and I had high expectations. I now have the confidence that I am totally in control of my plane. The DAS system just can't be that simple, and yet it is!!! Please feel free to have anyone who wants confirmation of your courses worth to email me. I will tell them that it is the best $ I have ever spent in the hobby. Steve Storman. Harrington Park, NJ I know the four short days with you have eliminated many years worth of frustrating trial and error learning. Most pilots think the next plane or fancy radio will make them fly better, but I knew "thinking outside the box" by investing in training with you would pay for itself many times over. Glen Spaulding I went flying today for the first time since taking your course and it went very well. I had 15 to 20 mph 90 degrees of cross winds to the runway. I wasn't near as nervous as I was before I took your course. I did 6 landings and my plane is in good shape. It seems so easy when I fly like you taught me. I'm having a ball now. Gerald Jefferies. Robertsdale, AL Dave Scott is a SUPERB teacher, with "nerves of steel" and a quiet, relaxed manner that leads to early confidence in flying. Prior to each flight Dave would explain exactly what we were going to accomplish and why. After each flight Dave critiqued it (always most politely) at which time he explained what happened and why. The student's only concern is to learn, and have fun while learning. Tony Fassi. Palm Beach, FL I am always referring to your materials for myself, and for my club. My training with you continues to be the rock solid foundation that has my flying to go so well.
Mike Rudney. Valley Forge Signal Seekers VP Your approach of treating both flight preparation and the actual flying as though it were full scale is absolutely on target for maximal learning and fun with minimal headaches. I only wish I'd come to the School BEFORE making all the ridiculous mistakes! Ken, Nate, and Ben Moore. Las Vegas, NV Since the class I have found that I have more confidence in my flying abilities. I am more relaxed and enjoy the sport more than ever. I have to admit that my investment in Dave Scott's class was the best thing I have done to improve my ability to fly. Dean Ehn. Boulder, CO The club members were amazed that I would even attempt to fly in 15-20 mph winds. As they watched and waited for me to crash, I just kept remembering what you taught, and finished my flight with a pretty good landing. I couldn't be more pleased with what I go out of the school. Dan Sprung. Bergen, NY I just wanted to let you know that my flying is going very well and has caught the attention of the local field club members. They continually comment on how well I control the plane and can’t believe that I’ve only been flying since May with just a week of instruction. Several flyers even ask me for tips from time to time. I do, of course, refer them to your school and manual. Thanks again. Paul Darland Having been a full-scale instructor for over 25 years I can truthfully say your method of RC instruction is superb and effective. I believe your class should be mandatory for anyone wishing to excel. Romeo Bachand. Mundelein, IL
