What does it take to learn to fly? Basically time and practice. Larks has a flight simulator so you can safety learn the basics of flying and gain some confidence before moving into the club's trainer. The club's trainer is equipped with a dual transmitter setup known as a 'buddy box'. Both the instructor and the student pilot have a transmitter. The instructor has full control of the airplane until he pushes a button and intentionally transfers control to the student pilot. When the instructor needs to take control, he simply releases the button and he immediately has full control again. Most students learn to solo within 25 flights.

Larks is the premier model airplane club in Southwest Louisiana. Larks is associated with the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) which is the national association supporting model aviation. You can learn more about the AMA at
