Joining the Hamilton Model Aero Club

Would you like to join up?…..Yes

Then it’s pretty easy. The Club requires two forms filled out for EACH individual NEW member (ie one copy of each form, for each family member joining). The first is for your membership to the Hamilton Model Aero Club. The other ensures your registration with the NZ national body (Model Flying New Zealand), who coordinate national modelling events, provide automatic insurance cover for individual member fliers at registered flying sites and publish the “Flier’s World” magazine along with many other benefits.

BOTH forms (links below) must be completed for each NEW family member applying to join.

HMACmembership – HMAC Membership form (.PDF form)

MFNZAffiliationform – Model Flying NZ form (.PDF form)

MFNZAffiliationform – Model Flying NZ form (Alternative Word Document)

Please download both forms, print out, fill out and sign each form and return to the Club Treasurer at the address below, with the appropriate subscription fee. Alternatively, complete the forms, save/scan and email them to the treasurer or come along to a club night and join up there.
