Proof of AMA membership is required every year for AMPS membership renewal. All AMPS memberships expire December 31st and are renewable during the month of December. The Club Field Rules must be adhered to when using the club flying field. New members are required to read and understand these rules before joining the club.

All new members are required to perform at least one (1) day of Club service during their first year of membership. The Initiation Fee ($100.00) for Open and Senior members will be refunded, or applied towards the second year of membership, upon completion of one (1) day of Club Service.

Our club is very proud to offer flying instruction as part of its membership benefits. If you require this service, a flight instructor will be assigned to you. It is very important that you understand that this service is contingent upon instructor workload and that instructors are volunteers and may not be available at all times. Applicants requiring flight instruction may be wait-listed until and instructor is available.
