Membership Information

In order for you to become a member of TORKS you must FIRST join the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). This is a national level modeling organization which organizes competition and most importantly provided each of us with $2,500,000.00 (Two Million five hundred thousand Dollars) worth of liability insurance. With new radio equipment accidents are rare but they do happen. To join the AMA you can get an application from any of the local hobby shops or call them directly at 1-800-I-FLY-AMA (1-800-435-9262).This will cost you $58.00 a year for an adult membership. Contact them for other rates for junior and senior members. (For you Electronic wizards, go to AMA website then in “New Stuff’ go to: “Online AMA Membership Application now available” and follow the instructions)

Once you have your AMA membership card or if you are already a TORKS member then:

1. Please start by reading and signing ONE copy of the flying field regulations. Please keep the other copy for your own reference.
2. Next, fill out the Torks Membership Application (torks-membership-application(You will need Acrobat Reader)
