The AMARC club has been in existence for over forty-five years and currently has a membership of over 60. If you want to learn more about our club, you can take part in one of our regular meetings. Admission is free, you do not have to be a member of AMARC to attend the meeting. Look in the Event field to see where and when the next meeting will take place, in the winter months the meetings begin at 20.00 and guests or potential members can meet with us. In the summer months (from May to the end of August) we organize evening field meetings on the last Tuesday of each month from 17.00 to 21.00, and if weather conditions permit, we invite you to the grill.
AMARC2002 has its own flying field in the Gordano Valley, between Portishead and Clevedon. We have a construction permit in its entirety to allow 365 days of flight. This depends on the rules of the clubs and we must meet the strict conditions with regard to wildlife in the area. All members should follow the rules on this page.
We provide all the creature comforts necessary for relaxing with tea and coffee making facilities available, a field charger for your Lipo's and all this in a tranquil country setting in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
We also welcome new members after they have met a member of the club committee where the clubs aspirations and limitations will be discussed, they are asked to read, understand and sign a prospectus agreeing to abide by the club rules and BMFA guidelines.
Guest Fliers are always welcome to join us, we prefer them to be current BMFA members and ask them to carry their card when on our sites. They must be accompanied at all times when in possession of an aircraft by the inviting member who will have cleared their visit with the Chair, Vice chair, Treasurer or Secretary beforehand. They are limited to a MAXIMUM of Two visits per year and are the members sole responsibility.
