Helicopter training with Marco
RC Model helicopter training at the Glocknerhof
Learn to fly RC helicopters the right way right from the start! Training is given with 700 and 550 electric helicopters. In addition to the correct handling of the helicopter, theory and flight-mechanical principles of helicopter flying are also part of the course content. The training programme is individually adapted to the pilot's skills and may therefore differ from the course description.
The following applies to all helicopter courses:
Training takes place on 5 days (Monday to Friday) with a maximum of 2 students at the same time. Each course participant makes 4 flights per day of approx. 6 minutes each. The rest of the day is at your own disposal. Prices are per student per course and include: Rental helicopters, remote controls, flight instructor, repairs, insurance and taxes. For hotel guests of the Glocknerhof the use of the airfield is already included.
Please arrive at the latest the day before the course!
Lessons take place from March to October, from Monday to Friday at the helicopter site. During the towing weeks in spring and autumn, there are no helicopter lessons and flying is not allowed at the helicopter site.
