Membership Process

To become a new member of the WRAM, we ask that you:


Attend two club meetings between January 1, and July 30 of the year you wish to join. If you have an AMA membership, and another WRAM member present, you can start to fly at our field right away! We can also arrange assistance or training if you are new to R/C flying.


After attending your second meeting, you can ask any WRAM member to sponsor your membership. We are a private club, but very welcoming, so don't be shy!


A new member fee of $100, plus 50% of the $200 annual dues (total of $200) will be required at that time.


Once granted probationary status, you will be eligible to fly at the WRAM field whenever another member is present. The field is staffed EVERY Saturday, Sunday, and major holiday during our flying season (weather and conditions permitting).


During the probationary period, you will not be permitted at the field unless another full member is present.


Upon successful completion of the probationary period (Jun-Oct) and having two full member sponsors, you will be eligible to become a full WRAM member at our annual meeting in November.


Applicants wishing to advance in the membership process, but fall outside of the flying season cut-off dates described above will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Due to the hard work and commitment of WRAM members over the past decades, our club owns 87 acres of beautiful farmland which is home to a first-rate, and one of a kind model aircraft flying field.


Sustaining our club requires a committed group of active members who also enjoy sharing our hobby in each other's company above all!


Good luck, and please do not be intimidated by our process for accepting new members. We are a very welcoming and fun group of model aviators who look forward to meeting new friends to share our hobby!
