QuickSTART memberships get you started in the hobby with minimal cost and maximal fun. You don't have to by ANYTHING including insurance to fly! Fly with our planes, our batteries, our propellers, and we'll get you to solo.
For $50 (minimum age 10 years old) you get free ground school, a two-month window of free QuickSTART instruction, and all benefits of membership except for voting. Your fee goes towards the rental and upkeep of our training equipment.
Your QuickSTART membership starts as soon as you join, but you'll be in ground school until you get to your two-month training block. You are required to complete your ground school prior to the training block.
During your training block, you'll train once a week with an SLRCFA QuickSTART Instructor, learning basic flying, then eventually soloing and getting the sign-off for unlimited flying! Training blocks are as follows:
To be eligible for QuickSTART, you must be at least 10 years of age (accompanied by adult if under 18) and may not have been an SLRCFA member for the previous 5 years.
