Membership

Membership Introduction

Membership in the North Dallas RC Club (NDRCC) is open to everybody, but you must be an active member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) before you can fly.

The AMA is the official national body for model aviation in the United States. The AMA Safety Code sets the standard for model aircraft operation and forms the cornerstone of the NDRCC safety regulations. The AMA also provides liability, accident, and loss insurance to individual members and clubs. You can obtain further information from the AMA website (http://www.modelaircraft.org) or by calling 765-287-1256. 

Please be aware that you must display current NDRCC membership identification in a frequency slot anytime you fly. Absolutely no substitutions are allowed, not even expired membership identification. Failure to follow this rule can lead to permanent loss of flying privileges.

The 2017 NDRCC dues and initiation fees are listed below. Each category is defined by your age on July 1st of the membership year, which may not be your age on the date you join.

The dues are reduced 50% for new members that join after the month of June, but the initiation fee remains the same throughout the year. New members that join in November or December pay dues only for the following year at the January rate, but they can begin participating in the club immediately.

The one-time initiation fee must be paid with any new OPEN membership. You will never have to pay the initiation fee again, even if you allow your annual membership to lapse for several years. YOUTH or EXTRA Family members must pay the initiation fee the first year they renew as an OPEN member.
