Welcome to Miniature Aircraft Association

Welcome to the Miniature Aircraft Association website. The Miniature Aircraft Association has long used the slogan "The Friendly Club" and strives to live up to it. We offer flight training for new pilots getting started or older pilots returning to the hobby. To access more information about the free instruction, or get into touch with our certified instructors click on the Flight School above.   If you are a pilot looking wanting the current wind conditions near Higgins Field, our weather page is reported from a station within a mile of the flying field. The weather forecast is for the exact GPS coordinates of Higgins Field.

Those who would like to be a member of our group can join the MAA from the selection under the "Our Club" menu.  To join the club you must first be a member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA).  You will include your AMA membership number and expiration date in the application form. Upon submitting your application form you'll be given the option to pay annual dues via PayPal or check.  Your membership will be complete once your payment is verified.  If you have any difficulties with joining or renewing or other club questions email or any of the club officers.

We also have many more informative pages you find using the tabs above. The Event Calendar lists club events. You will also find a Who's flying calendar where you can see who is planning to be at the field and post when you plan to be there. We also have the requisite information cascade on our Facebook page
