Join the AMA – The Bit and Pieces RC Club, as well as most model aviation clubs, require all members maintain a membership with the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). By joining the AMA you will become one of the thousands of registered RC pilots in the country, and will have the insurance coverage necessary to fly at any AMA sanctioned field, including the Bits and Pieces RC Club Field in Heritage Park, Adrian. Membership also provides the individual with a subscription to Model Aviation Magazine.

Prospective members can submit their membership form and dues in a few ways. A membership with club dues can also be submitted to one of the club officers at the club field. They can also send their membership information to our Treasurer. Include proof of AMA membership, a self-addressed and stamped envelope, dues, and membership form in a letter to the address indicated on the member information form. Alternatively a prospective member may be able to fill out the membership form online and submit payment via PayPal.Members are expected to know and follow the RC model rules and guidelines defined by the Club, AMA, and the FAA. These rules are available online and are posted at the airfield. A visit to the flying field or membership meeting is also suggested.
Earn your Wings - Once you have all the necessary memberships, you can attend student nights and earn your wings. After that, you can come out to the field whenever you feel the need to fly.
