better than jets?

Hi guys

Last month I finally finished my Pilots licence. Funny my knees were not shaking, unlike flying a jet for a first time So what places can I fly into and fly my model planes?

Perhaps at next year's Leamington Event I can give a few lucky winners a ride.

Congratulations! Enjoy the moment....

can you fit a jet in the back of the Tomahawk, or do you have to get an L-39 ????

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.

Excellent, congratulations mate... its a real buzz eh! and a heck of a lot easier than flying R/C in many ways, especially for orientation When I did my PPL my instructor was amazed at how quickly I picked it up... All the previous years of R/C flying really does help!
You can come drop into Picton Airport, home of Prince Edward County R/C club where Myles and I fly our models anytime you like....

Do you plan on getting yourself a 'real' plane now?
personally Ive always wanted to home build a full size for myself one day maybe a 3/4 scale Fiesler Storch or a BD5

Congrats on finishing your PPL Peter!

I noticed your standing next to RKQ (I did my Intro on RKQ lol)!

As to flying to RC flyins, we flew a Bonanza into Chatham this year before all the morning flying started...

Just an idea!
