For beginners who want to join the club you don’t even need a plane to start. The club has trainer planes available and you can sign up to fly with an instructor.
The instructor will use the buddy box system. The buddy box system let’s you fly the plane unless you encounter issues and the instructor can save the plane from crashing. After a while you may decide to buy your own trainer airplane. You can have an instructor take you up on your own plane on the buddy box. When you are comfortable flying solo you can solo for an instructor and then can go up on your own.
