Academy of Model Aeronautics Membership

In order to join Indianapolis R/C South, you must first be a member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) – a national modeling organization that charters our club and provides local clubs and their landowners with the proper insurance.

AMA Dues: Being a member of the AMA will provide you with liability and accident/medical insurance and a subscription to Model Aviation magazine. Dues are $75.00 for adults (19 and up), $65.00 for Seniors, and only $15.00 for Youths 19 and under (all of which include a subscription to Model Aviation Magazine). You cannot join a local club unless you are a member of the AMA.

To join the AMA online, click here – or you can download the application form and print it out by clicking here.

Indianapolis R/C South Membership: Joining our club will provide you access to a frequency-controlled field and qualified flight instructors. Learning to fly with an instructor will help you learn faster, more safely, and will help minimize the possibility of damaging the model – a frustration that we all have experienced to some degree while learning to fly.

Annual Dues: Full Membership $80.00, Junior (19 or under) $40.00, Family Membership $120.00. New memberships accepted after July 1st, ½ price for rest of year. New memberships accepted after October 1st include the following year’s membership. *** NOTE *** – Dues are 1/2 off while we search for a new flying field.
