Become a Club Member

We thank you for your interest in becoming a member of Dare County Radio Control Flyers. This section will provide you with information on how to apply for membership, and how to obtain answers to any questions you may have.

Membership Requirements

Any person, regardless of experience in radio control aviation, is eligible and welcome to apply for membership in Dare County Radio Control Flyers.

We require that all membership applicants who intend to operate model aircraft become members of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) prior to applying for membership in our club, and that once a club member, that they remain current in their annual dues to the AMA. This is required because our club's charter is granted by the AMA, and the AMA also provides liability insurance coverage that all of our members must maintain to operate aircraft at our flying field.

Applicants may also become associate club members without the added cost of becoming AMA member, however the role of these members within the club will be limited to activities that do not include the operation of model aircraft.

Each member must also pay annual membership dues to our club, and remain current in those dues to use our flying field and to be considered a member in good standing.

Lastly, and most importantly, you must agree at all times to comply with our club's bylaws, flying field operational and safety rules, the AMA's National Model Aircraft Safety Code, and all laws regarding the operation and use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems.
