######     No MAAA Insurance == No Flying     ###### 

If you would like to join our Club, then the first thing you should do is 'come on down' any Saturday afternoon (e.g. training session time) and have a look at what we do.  There you can ask questions before you purchase your first trainer model, radio gear, and find out what is most suitable for our field and DAC training.  If it is a nice day, just ask a club member to see if it is possible to try flying a trainer model using a "buddy system" (try before you buy). 

 

DAC Flyer for prospective new members here.

 

Once you have joined our club your DAC Approved Trainer (Instructor) will assist you in your training program to learning to fly.
