2 clubs both $20 a year. Basic grass fields that gets mowed regularly. The local club is plank city and pretty basic, I'm the only heli flyer, the other club I joined because I travel up there quite a bit and they have LOTS of heli flyers and they've done some really nice pits. I figured I could at least chip in on the mowing.

Man all you guys consider yourselves very lucky. In the local club around here is is riduclous. With the membership fees and levey's. For me to join firt time would be like $6-700 for the first year, and every other year is like $4-450. Its just amazing. Dont understand why. When I was a member there last it was like $150 a year, that was about 10 years ago.

Dues...
Our club charges $100.00 per year, and this includes anyone in the imediate family that flies also, as long as they belong to the AMA....
Also we fly planks and heli's at our field with no problems....(most of us own heli's and plnks so who is going to complain???)
The rule is, if you are on the main runway, you must be able to fly a regular pattern wether you have a heli or a plane....
If you are just learning to hover, or want to practice 3D, we have a separate heli area that works from the same frequnecy board....
It has worked out now for about 8 +/- years......
It is also required that everyone take a day to mow... I like the previous post about asseccing those that do not.... might have to add that to the few rules that we have...... bottom line is be safe and have fun....

The club I use to belong to raised their fees to $455.00 AUD ($345.80 USD) that's including the $100.00 one time joining fee and $15.00 gate key. After that they charge $340.00 AUD ($258.40 USD) a year. What a big rip off.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

AMA required, & $15.00 per year. We fly at the old municipal airport,(city parks special permit) and maintain it ourselves. Great runway, turbine qualified, mostly planks, but recruiting heli flyers every chance I get.

WOW I'm shocked!!!!
You guys must have amazingly PERFECT fields with permanent structures, tables, and many members to be paying over $100!!!

I'm AMAZED! True, my club is small with about 80 members, be we only have to pay $35 a year, and if you join in July, $17.50...it costs us $500 to rent the field every year, plus others miscellaneous costs and mowing fees. Even after all of that we still have more than $3000 in the bank---

I can't express my amazement enough--I want to see some pictures here!

Happy Flying!

For the price we pay, I would think they would build some buildings and have a nice paved runway but it's really a cow pasture with fencing going around the outside. Here is a link to look at some aerial veiws of the club. http://www.wrcs.org.au/ Here are some pictures of a field I go to now. http://www.asac.org.au/Memberpics.html Our insurance here cost $160.00 per person per year, so that is why our membership costs are high.

Take Care,

I belong to 2 clubs, I pay 40.00 a year for one and 25.00 for the other. The one in town is the old landfill that we rent from the city for a dollar a year. Its a great club with a lot of great people. The other field is about 40 minutes from me and is owned by a club member.

$50 for one local club with a nice place to fly.
$20 for a second club that flies off a very nice sod farm with not a lot of amenities.

$0 a year to fly at George Maloof Air Park here in Albuquerque. The field is considered a city park and maintained mostly by the city. 700' x 500' paved runway, three heli pads, two porta-a-potties, running water, and a covered pit area.

$15 (I think that's right) a year to fly at Balloon Fiesta Park which is also a city facility with 80 acres of beautifully maintained grass. My favorite place to fly as long as the dangerous electric plane guys aren't around. But no restrooms to use.

Jesus christ, this is making me sick, seeing what all your guys pay, I only wish I could do it for $200 a year. This year I paid $100 to fly at a Farmers field with another friend. But it was a pain, you couldn't drive all the way in you had to do a 5min walk with all your gear, then at the end go down a slippery slope and jump over a creek. Not sure what I will do this year.

Wow, this certainly has been an interesting discussion. I had no idea there would be such a difference in pricing for club dues. I heard one person say they pay 4 or 5 hundred dollars to fly every year. Man you are getting rip off What kind of field are you flying on anyway. I heard others say they pay only about 25 dollars a year to fly. Now that is not very much either. Our field is big (one of the biggest and best I have every seen with a beautiful lake right behind it) and a club member donated a riding mower a few years ago and it has really paid off. We collect our dues to pay for a number of things such as a new runway, which only the plane guys have to have. We helicopter guys can land anywhere but it is nice to have the run way, because we can use it to bring in a number of other events such as big bird fly ins and jet rallies as well, which hopefully will help pay for the run way. But it sounds like the amount you pay is relative to the return you get
