You can, of course, drop in anytime at the field while awaiting your AMA membership.  We’ll get you hooked up with a flight instructor.  Our instructors require no fee.  They do it voluntarily to further the hobby and because it’s fun to bring someone in and teach them to fly.

To be able to fly alone (solo), Your instructor must first deem that you can fly safely, plus you will be required to take off and land three consecutive times in the same session, all on your own, under the (distant) watchful eye of an instructor, without stalling the engine or crashing.
