On Saturday June 20th, the Oneonta R/C Flyers held their Introduction to radio controlled flying to a group of Boy Scouts. In the photos you'll see Mike Jones teaching the Scouts everything from safety to full-sized aircraft details including flight instruments. The Scouts moved on to cut out Styrofoam plate gliders under the supervision of John Delberta and Steve Fyfe and proceeded to have a great time flying them. A go at the flight simulators gave the Scouts a bit of hands-on experience with the transmitters, then off to the buddy box trainers. Paul Meyer and Steve Fyfe were the Intro Pilot instructors with Robert Williams and myself assisting the students. Pete Tavarone did flight demonstrations with his helicopter and also a Hellcat topping off the very successful day.
