All memberships are renewed at only $50.00 per year if renewal is received before December 30th of the current membership year. If not, you can still renew at the new member price. *If you join in October, November or December, your next year dues are already paid, so you do not have to renew for over a year.
Quick Way To Join Our Club Using Pay Pal
The Casa Grande RC Flyer first year dues are $75.00. Unless there is a membership special, all dues are for the calendar year. If you wish to join, you can do so by U.S. mail or Pay Pay, which is especially convenient for our Canadian flyers or anyone wanting to use a credit card or bank account.
To use a credit card or checking account debit, you will need to establish a Pay Pal account, at Pay Pal.com, (if you don't already have one). Sign into the account and look for the heading PAY & GET PAID. Then look for MAKE PAYMENTS. Next find SEND MONEY. The e-mail address used to make a payment to the club is CasaGrandeFlyer@aol.com. The usual membership dues are $75.00 but because you can't provide the required stamped self addressed envelope when using Pay Pal, the Pay Pal membership charge is $80.00. Enter that amount ($80.00) and be sure you are paying in USD (US Dollars). Finally, under ADD NOTE, be sure to type in your name, the mailing address you want the membership badge sent to (in the USA or Canada), your AMA number, e-mail address and telephone number.
When we receive the funds we will process your membership and mail your card and club information to the address you provided using First Class mail. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR AMA MEMBERSHIP MUST BE PAID UNTIL 12/31/21 OR LATER TO JOIN.You will not need to send a copy of your AMA membership card as we can now verify your membership online.
Of course anyone can join by U.S.mail for only $75.00 by sending their check payable to the "Casa Grande RC Flyers" with the correct information asked for above, along with a stamped self addressed envelope to:
Nancy Friedman, Treasurer

5309 N Pioneer Dr

We encourage everyone to join as soon as they have their AMA membership paid until 12/31/22 or later. Please remember that no memberships will be accepted this year at the field because of the COVID-19 virus and social distancing requirements.
I sincerely hope that this information helps everyone who wants to join. After joining, our renewal dues are unchanged and remain at $50.00 for the 2023 calander year. There are no plans to increase the renewaw dues.

The Casa Grande RC Flyers received the Award Of Excellence. The award was started by the AMA in 1990. Since then, only 58 clubs have received this honor, including the Casa Grande RC Flyers. The AMA staff (Erin Dobbs) recommended to the District Vice President that our club receive this award. The District Vice President agreed, and at the quarterly Executive Council meeting in Muncie, Indiana, the nomination was presented and voted on by ALL the district vice presidents and AMA executive officers. They unanimously approved our inclusion into this select group because of our club's community engagement and our continued dedication to model aviation and the Academy of Model Aeronautics. To put this into perspective, there are over 2,500 AMA clubs in the nation and only 58 have ever received this award. Thank you AMA for this top honor.
The Casa Grande RC Flyers was also named as a Gold Level Leader Club for several years in a row becasue of their wonderful facilities and activites.
