About FARM Club
Welcome! We are happy to have your interest as a potential new member to FARM club. The FARM membership year is from January 1 through December 31. FARM initiation and membership dues are used to finance the cost of maintaining flying sites, for publishing and distributing a monthly newsletter to each member and to other interested parties, to buy prizes awarded at club events, and for other Board approved expenses.
FARM members are required to maintain active membership in the ACADEMY OF MODEL AERONAUTICS (AMA). AMA applications are available through FARM club officers, at hobby shops, and in the AMA magazine MODEL AVIATION. AMA provides national level model representation for international model competitions, national competitions each year, representation for radio frequency allocations from the Federal Communications Communications (FCC), and most importantly, THE LIABILITY INSURANCE PROGRAM for clubs and fliers.
