Training & Instruction

Flying radio controlled airplanes and helicopters is a great hobby for both the young and the young at heart.  Learning to fly on your own
can be a frustrating and expensive task.  Let the qualified instructors at the Yakima Valley Aero Modelers help get you flying! 

Have your own equipment?  Great, bring it out and we can help make sure your craft is airworthy.  Don't know if flying is for you?
