AMA Club #331

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website

Current Club Announcements

  • The June 2016 FMAC Club meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 1 starting 7:00 PM at Warner Field(Club Airfield). Note the time change to the normal summer hours.

    Please feel free to come early and get in a few flights.

  • Several people have used the FAA B4UFLY App that reports Warner field is within the 5 mile radius of Frederick Airport. We have confirmed with the tower manager that the app is wrong. We are 5.3 miles from the Geomarker for FDK and DO NOT need to notify the tower when we are flying. We will post this information at the field, on our website, and on facebook. Please remember to give way to any full scale planes in the area (see and avoid) and have fun.

  • The mowing schedule has been updated with recommended mowing dates for 2016. If you have time and want to mow, sign up! Its a labor of love, and if everyone does it once or twice a year, we easily cover the entire season. Let us know if the gas is low. Mowing instructions are included in the signup sheet located HERE . If you're unsure of the mower, contact Brad and we'll show you the ropes.

  • Frederick Model Aircraft Club is now on Facebook! Use the Tab in the Navigation area.. Post your recent flying experience with a picture of your aircraft and any other activities at the field!

  • Cub Scout Day camp July 2015 at 4H Center on Basford Road south of Jefferson, Md. Member Dwight Warfield conducted a flight demonstration for about 150 Cub Scouts.

Club Flight Permit for AMA members affected by the FAA SFRA

For 2016 only, Frederick Model Aircraft Club will allow members of clubs within the 30 Nautical Mile Special Flight Rules Area around Reagan National Airport to fly at Warner Field under one of three conditions:

  1. They may follow the normal club guest policy, including having a current club member present
  2. They may join FMAC as full members
  3. Or, They may purchase a club flight permit for $40

To purchase the club flight permit, they must prove current membership in a club that has been shut down by the FAA, must have a current AMA membership, and receive an initial flight safety briefing from a current FMAC Club Member. Proof of club membership may be by providing a copy of a current membership card or verification by their club membership secretary to applications@frederickmodelaircraftclub.org. To apply for a Club Flight Permit, follow the Membership Apply/Renew process.


Flyers should have their flight permit visible when flying at Warner Field, either on their person or transmitter.

The purpose of this organization is to promote the building and safe operation of model aircraft and to promote acceptance and good will toward this sport/hobby through educational involvement in the community.
