Flying Safely

AMAS Inc member and club activities are governed by, but not limited to, Australian airspace laws which are enforced by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.  To learn about Australian airspace, refer to Air Services webpage here.

There are specific regulations which control the flying of model aircraft in Australia and which our members are expected to know and comply with at all times.

Whether just learning or an experienced flyer we strongly recommend you click on the links below and read the relevant regulations.

Open fields and flying together

The AMAS believes its important to grow the hobby and make it accessible. With that in mind we created the openfields and flying together programs.

Use the flying together logo to indicate your club allows choice. You support members joining the society of their choosing. We know that some organisations are opposed to aero-modelers having a choice of insurer/affiliation but AMAS supports freedom of choice for everyone.

Use the openfields logo to indicate that members of other societies are welcome at your field for open days, fun flys or competitions. AMAS believes the closed field policies of other organisations are not in the interest of aero-modelers or our hobby.  If your club welcomes all flyers regardless of what association they belong to then use the open fields logo on your website and event flyers.
