Membership Info

Aberdeen and District Soarers is a well established Club. It was formed in 1978 by a group of enthusiasts who shared a common interest in building and flying radio controlled model gliders. Club membership has varied between thirty and fifty over the years, but there has always been an enthusiastic core keen to promote the sport and to provide help and guidance to new members. Historically the main interests have been thermal and slope soaring, but in recent years this has been joined by the flying of electric powered models.

All Club members must be insured against third party risks and registered with the CAA. This is now a simple online process arranged through the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) to which ADS is affiliated.

Anyone wishing to join the Club should contact Club Secretary Rainer Goldbeck. An application form may be downloaded below. Please note that ADS is primarily a gliding and electric flight Club.
