The Scottish Aeromodellers Association (SAA) was formed eighty years ago providing a Non-Profit Scottish body dedicated to the maintenance and support of the internationally recognised sport encompassing all model flying disciplines.

The SAA exists as an Association of Scottish Aeromodelling Clubs and provides a variety of services, events, competitions and knowledge base for its members.

We are the central body in Scotland dedicated to the support and maintenance of all model flying disciplines in the internationally recognised sport of Aeromodelling.
