New Members

Basingstoke Model Aero Club welcomes enquiries about membership. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced flier, all are welcome at BMAC. Beginners will find a wealth of knowledge and experience to help them learn, and the more advanced can just enjoy our superb flying site.

Before applying for membership, please read our Rules and Club Constitution via the links at the top of the page. Also, if possible, please visit our flying site before applying. There are people there most days if the weather is OK and you can get your form proposed and seconded.

We do have strong safety regulations, which are necessary to keep our hobby and each other safe, and to respect our neighbours.
