Re: looking for an instructor with compensation

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

I would suggest you take up Kevin's offer. Kevin is a very capable flyer (don't tell him I said that Not only would you have flying privileges at the field, but you can be signed up for notification indoor flying at RIM Park during the winter and as a bonus you will have contact with other flyers at our meeting and be able to discuss problems, successes, and recommendations for planes. There is also family picnics, New Year's Day Fun Fly etc.

Hope this helps.

Re: looking for an instructor with compensation

I hate to stir things up here - BUT!

According to the MAAC guidelines and our insurance... an instructor cannot 'Charge' for his services.

If this does happen, then you are no longer participating in a hobby / recreational activity you are now in a "Commercial Activity' and your MAAC insurance is NULL and VOID.

The only compensation that you can 'GIVE' an instructor is the amount "Equivilent to the price of a Single Beer."

Without going into a lot of details here, check with your ZD on this and the Insurance Chair, it is a 'Quirk' of the insurance policy that keeps Commercial operation from utilizing our resources.

So the best option remains to join a club, get FREE Instruction and have a GREAT TIME!
Life is either a daring adventure...
...or nothing.
