We are sad to announce that long time member Carl Anderson recently passed away.
The former agreement between the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC) and AMA is no longer in effect because of recent changes in the Canadian Aviation Regulations (Canada’s counterpart to the FAA) Part IX and its exemption granted to MAAC and its members.
Effective January 1, 2022, the AMA will require MAAC members to join AMA for coverage to fly at our fields and events. Affiliate membership for non-US permanent residents is $36 per year and includes insurance and competitive privileges. Non-US citizens are required to follow the same model aircraft regulations that US citizens are required to follow.
In order to fly model aircraft in Canada as a US resident, you must have a MAAC membership. There are two options to join MAAC. You can purchase a temporary 90-day foreign membership for $40 CAD or a full membership for $80 CAD.
