The Model Aeronautical Association of Australia (MAAA) is the largest aero-modelling organisation in Australia. We encourage and support all Australians to safely enjoy the adrenalin rush of a fun flight.

For over 75 years, the MAAA has been Australia’s largest flying organisation, focusing on giving members the best flying experience. This proud heritage and the shared knowledge amongst our 10,000+ members and 330+ clubs, allows aero-modellers to soar too greater, more thrilling heights, while allowing us to continue to innovate and protect the future of our sport.

Australian flying fields are equal and in many cases better than those enjoyed by our modelling counterparts overseas. All of this has been achieved through the hard work of past and present members.

As a leading expert, the MAAA help clubs provide the best advice, instructors and knowledge base so you can learn to fly and enjoy your sport. You can undertake pilot training, get your wings, or even become an Instructor or Inspector!

MAAA clubs are about fun flying, camaraderie and community.

As an MAAA member you will have access to:

  • Better training programs and a Wings proficiency scheme to get you up to speed and in the air faster.
  • Largest range of modelling disciplines from radio control, aerobatics, jets to FPV flying which the MAAA holds a CASA Exemption, ensuring our members can operate outdoors (just to name a few).
  • Safer flights with more robust operating procedures and a proactive incident investigation system.
  • Access to more events for pilots and spectators to attend both in Australia and overseas.
  • A strong spirit of camaraderie to support you from the largest Australian aero-modelling community.
  • The most comprehensive insurance for aero-modellers in Australia with no excess.
  • The only organisation that enables you to fly competitively on the international stage.
  • The only industry body that works with CASA and the government to protect your sport.

Special Interest Groups

The sport of aero-modelling has many facets which individual clubs may not participate in. For this reason, special interest groups have formed over the years for those members wishing to pursue a particular interest. Pylon Racing, Gliding, Electrics, Indoor Flying, Scale, War-birds, Helicopters, Pattern and Control Line, are some of these interests.

All special interest groups listed on this page, have members affiliated with the MAAQ.
