Avon Model Aero Radio Club (AMARC)


Thank you for taking an interest in joining AMARC, we have our own private 10 acre flying site situated in the Gordano valley just outside of Portishead, onsite Toilets, charging facilities, car parking for 30 vehicles, a well-kept grass runway and planning permission to fly 365 days a year during day light hours. Our members fly model Planes, Helicopters, Drones and gliders both electric and nitro variants.

Joining AMARC

The club is always looking for new members, of all ages and abilities. So, if you've been flying for years, or just want to give it a try, get in touch and we can help get you flying. We have club demonstrator aircraft, so you don't even have to own a model to give it a go. We use a buddy box system on our demonstration aircraft so the trainer can take control at any point during the flight. Once you decide model flying is for you we can assist you in choosing suitable radio gear and model.



Club membership fees are due on 31st March and must be paid by 30th April, if the club fee is not paid by 30th April your membership will expire and you will be classed as a new member and as such incur a joining fee. Annual membership runs from April to March.
