From very early on this year we have seen a steady flow of new members joining the club. Having ended 2018 with 53 members we are up to 62 including 2 juniors and 10 trainees. This is a clear indication that the club is growing and has a great future ahead.
Our club instructors have been key to supporting the proportionately high number of trainees and encouraging them through the joys and pains of learning to fly model RC aircraft. Not only that but they are the front line in welcoming new members, introducing them to club rules, assessing experienced RC pilots, carrying out noise tests and taking newcomers to the sport up for the first time. All in a very friendly, encouraging and selfless way. With at least 4 members having achieved their Club A certificate so far this year it has been a very satisfying flying season for all concerned.
This is just one of the aspects that make AMFC such an hospitable and friendly club.
As the webmaster for our site I’ll be putting up posts for news items from the committee as and when they come up. I’ll also be happy to post any news or photos that members wish to pass on for general circulation on the website bearing in mind that this site is accessible to “all and any” on the internet.
