Membership at GMAC

There are very few time restrictions at GMAC. If the weather permits, we fly seven days a week. 'Wet' fuel powered aircraft may fly between 9.00 am and 8.00 pm; electric aircraft may fly between 7am and 11.00 pm. 
(Night flying may occur, with the appropriate authority.) 
Of course, noise limitations of IC planes apply. 
New members receive free training by our volunteer club instructors. 
We have two runways. The main runway is 170 metres long and 40 metres wide, making it ideal for training. Our cross-strip is predominantly used for heli flying. 

Our club has over 200 flying and non-flying members. Most members have a long-term affiliation with the club, while shorter-term memberships of a few years can be a reflection of work commitments, family interests or life-style choices.

One of the most obvious characteristics of our club is our non-competitive ethos. Most of our members prefer casual and social flying at the site, a culture we accept and encourage. This laid-back approach to the hobby is underpinned by strict adherence to safety standards.

Many of our members do participate and excel in competitions run by special interest groups such as Pattern Aerobatics, Jet flyers and the Scale Association. From time to time GMAC hosts some of these events.

New members and visitors are always welcome at our club. Call in and have a look at our facilities and have a chat.

Association Rules and Conduct

At GMAC we attempt to be friendly and flexible, providing an environment where serious competition and fun flying co-exist. Respect for each other, a desire to help and fantastic facilities make the club one of the best model flight associations you will find anywhere. All associations are required to have rules and codes for conduct. You will find GMAC's rules and code of conduct below.
