Stetson Flight School 2022...

Current status and information:

Process: Go/No-go will be posted here & the Facebook group at approximately 3pm.

Status:Flight School is ON for today Wednesday May 18, 2022.

Current status and information:

The Stetson Club Executive, Chief Flying Instructor and Flight School are working to ensure all provincial law/requirements are met along with the safety of all club members is upheld.

If you have any CV-19 symptoms or any illness whatsoever, DO NOT attend Flight School.

To that end the following protocols are in place:-

  • Masks must be worn within 2m of others during Flight School.
  • Everyone must maintain 2m distancing as much as possible & be mindful of touching common places/items.
  • Wireless connectivity for student to instructor radios is perferred.
  • Everyone should carry hand sanitizer and use it when appropriate.

Most newer radio controls are capable of wireless training connectivity. Students must become familar with enabling the feature prior to Flight School and must carry the owners manual (or a print out of your exact radios wireless features). The Flight School staff are unable to know the exact details of every radio out there, so documentation will be the difference between flying and not.

Per normal operations bring the following:-

  • Your aircraft in good working order (full inspection prior is highly recommended).
  • Fuel, fuel jug, fuel pump, glowplug ignitor (charged) OR batteries, charged and in good condition.
  • Tools and spares.
  • Cleaning solution & paper towels.
  • Stetson Club membership card & MAAC card.

Keep a close eye on this webpage for the latest information.

The Stetson Flight School Program is now OPEN for the 2022 season!

We've enjoyed another successful year in 2021 with plenty of students, successful sessions and pilots receiving their Wings.

The school will begin again on 17 May, 2022 and occurs each Tuesday from 4:30pm until dusk. This of course is weather dependent and relies on the field condition. Continuing from previous years is the option to defer to Wednesday as dictated by the weather (& dependent on student numbers). Keep an eye on this web page for all the information you need during the season including live weather updates on flight school nights (Tuesday’s). Go/No-go statuses will also be posted on the Stetson Flyers Facebook group page.

Students who started last year and have not yet earned their wings are invited to return to the school for the 2022 season. There is a limit of 16 active students due to the number of available instructors and actual flying time, slots are still available so register now!

All students must apply via link below and will be added to the student list until the limit is reached. Ater that, they will be placed on a waiting list and contacted as slots become available.

The flight line is open to current students and instructors only on Tuesdays from 4:30pm.

Please contact me at anytime via email for any/all of your questions, I’m here to help and I’m looking forward to the new season.

What is the Stetson Flight School?

Stetson Flight School (SFS) is a program designed by experienced club pilots to get you flying radio control aircraft as soon as possible while teaching you all that you need to know for a long and safe flying career..."

What do I need to do? That's a good question.

  2. Join the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC).

  3. Read the Students Brief carefully to understand what the SFS is all about and what the school program involves.

  4. Purchase an approximately .40 sized (or larger) trainer aircraft (fuel-powered or electric), complete with radio control and support equipment. Contact your CFI for more information here.

  5. REGISTER by clicking the link above

    Plusieurs de nos instructeurs sont bilingues et offrent la même qualité d'enseignement en français.

    We are working hard on the program and the support structure, including constant upgrades for your benefit.

    The first Flight School class date is on 17 May, 2022 as announced above (weather dependent) and will cover field familiarization, club rules & safety and an opportunity to have your aircraft checked by instructors. All things going well, we will get your plane in the air for a trim flight.

    What is the Stetson Ground School?

    Stetson Ground School is a one night, all inclusive session where the CFI & instructors will give you the students an extensive but high level overview of everything from aircraft parts and function, to engines and batteries, safety and handling and much much more!

    The Ground School session is Wednesday 11 May, 2022 at 5pm. It will give you a great starting point for radio control aircraft flying and for the upcoming season.
