Scottish Aeromodellers Association


The SAA has a range of memberships that provide pilots with the necessary insurance cover to allow them to fly at club sites. Membership also allows access to the Safety Achievement scheme, as well as attending SAA events and the AGM.

We have memberships for Seniors, Juniors, and Family groups, and Youth Groups.

Membership runs from 1st January - 31st December.

Membership is active from the date of receipt of the relevant membership fee by the SAA.

The fees for 2024 are (* existing 2024 BMFA Members):

  • Full (Adult/Senior) £39.00 (* £16.50)
  • Junior Membership £18.00 (* £7)
  • Family Membership £47.00 (* 23.50)
  • Youth Group Membership £5.00 per Youth member (** see below)

** The SAA has created a category of membership that is open to Youth Groups such as Cadets, Scouts etc. The leader of the group has to take out a full Senior membership at the Senior fee shown above. Each Youth member can then have a Youth membership at the reduced fee shown.

This membership is only valid when the Youth Group is in attendance on specified days along with the Group Leader. i.e. it does not allow Youth members to fly unaccompanied at any other time.

The following guidance document should be read and understood when applying for Youth Group Membership - 2024 Youth Group Membership Guidance.

To apply for a Youth Group membership, the Group Leader should complete and return the following application form - 2024 Youth Group Application Form.
