The main section of the book is the actual log. The object is to compile the trainee flight history for each training session. The trainee compiles the required detail for each flight and at the end of the session the instructor records comment relating to the trainees level of achievement as well as any aspect that requires more time to achieve the necessary standard. This record serves a number of purposes:

  • Provides the trainee with a written assessment of achievement as well as any particular area which requires more training.
  • Provides the trainer with a reminder of the level of achievement and what aspects the student requires more tuition or time.
  • Provides alternate instructors with the required information to continue training as the same level the trainee has reached.

Note: Bronze Wings are awarded for demonstrated flight proficiency for Electric powered Models and Silver for Methanol or Gas Powered Aircraft. Where the term Bronze is used it applies equally to Silver Wings.

  1. Dexterity – locate all transmitter control quickly and without fumbling.
