Membership Fees and Application Form


The membership fee that you will pay is built up from a number of components and depends on type of membership (adult, junior or family), whether you are renewing membership or joining the club for the first time, and whether you are already a member of the Scottish Aeromodellers Association (SAA), having joined through another club. Full details for your individual circumstances will be provided by the Membership Secretary when you apply to join the club. 


For guidance, an adult joining the club for the first time would have to pay the following:


Initial joining fee (first year only)                          £0


Adult annual fee (including SAA membership)      2021/2022    £75


The adult fee includes an amount  covering membership of the Scottish Aeromodellers Association which provides third party insurance cover for flying activities.


Junior fees start from £15 and, depending on a specific age cut off criteria, the club pays the appropriate SAA fees. The Membership Secretary will explain in more detail on application.


You can download an editable Application Form here.  (Due to the format, this needs to be done from a PC or laptop, it is unlikely to work on a phone or tablet.). Once completed, you may post it to the address provided or hand it to a committee member at the field.
