Model aircraft flying might sound intimidating or even incredibly expensive and many potential hobbyists are discouraged by the risk of investing in an aircraft and crashing it on its maiden flight...

What do I need to start this hobby?

SAMAA Membership 
Although all of us have dreams of tearing up the sky in a Mustang or Jet, like all hobbies, RC flying takes time to master and learn to crawl and then walk, before running.
A good Transmitter
In order to fly any remotely operated aircraft, a transmitter is a pre-requisite.  In fact, even flying a simulator on a PC is best done with a real-world transmitter.  A good investment here will last a long time!
A Trainer Aircraft

Many new members join us, already mentally committed to pursuing the sport in the Club environment. If, however, you’re still not quite sure and don’t want to make the cash investment in an aircraft and membership as yet, then feel free to come join us just as a visitor to inspect the Club facilities, interact with existing Members and watch the flying activities at the field. The benefit of such a look-see-decide visit then also includes the ability to meet some of the Pilots who can assist you in learning to fly, discuss your first plane purchase with them and get invaluable advice and of course get a real sense of what RC flying involves!  Reach out to us today, by filling in the Contact Me form on our Contact Us page to arrange a visit!

Planning your first visit to the Club

Most veteran RC flyers will tell you that one of the most important factors in  learning to fly RC aircraft is having an experienced pilot to assist you and finding a place to fly that is safe, secure and a convenient place to learn all about this incredible hobby. At JOMAC, we’re fortunate to have both in abundance! While it is possible to learn to fly with the right airplane or heli all by yourself, you are going to have a better chance with the help of an experienced pilot.

Having made the decision to take up the hobby, there are a number of things to know that will make your experience on your first visit to the Club an enjoyable one.  We’re so looking forward to welcoming you at JOMAC that we’ve taken the time to set out a couple of these for you on this page. We hope you find them useful!
