But it is still up the the club your wanting to fly at. Some clubs will not allow a person with MAAC to fly at thier AMA insured site. so I would ask before flying at any clubs you want to fly at. At a AMA sponsered fly you would have no issues or a IRCHA ran fly you would have no issues. But as I said some clubs wont allow it.

And maybe the club in question, if they allow guests, are not aware, or ignorant of, the fact that the insurance agreement is reciprical.

That has usually been what I have found on both sides of the border, as I travel a fair bit between both countries.

But if you check the web sites of both organizations, you will find they both state this fact in their insurance areas.

And the magazines for both organizations mention this in many of their issues during any year.

Here is the official documents

President's News

Date : June 18, 2009
Created by : Richard Lyle Barlow -- 5744L
Subject : MAAC/AMA Reciprocal Agreement

News : Please note that the current version of the MAAC/AMA reciprocal agreement is now posted on the MAAC website under "documents".
All MAAC members are covered by MAAC's insurance at AMA registered sites and sanctioned events. Always remember to fly safely and, where American and Canadian rules or protocols differ, the more stringent shall apply to the visitor.
Please make our American AMA friends welcome at Canadian events.
Have a good summer and fly safely at all times.

Just to be sure, Print this PDF and bring it with you as proof when you travel in the U.S.

Last year I went to AMA headquarter in Muncie for the F3C W.C. and IRCHA with my MAAC menbership. I was welcomed like if I was AMA member. Actually the lady at the IRCHA Jamboree registration was a former MAAC employee.

The 2010 version should be available soon.

Good idea to print out the agreement there. Just remember still some clubs do not honor this agreement either. Seen some that just flat out refuse to allow a non ama member fly.

Mutt ,akes a good point here, as it is really up to the executive of any flying club to decide who they will allow to fly at their facility.
