About Aeromodellers







About Aeromodellers NSW

Aeromodellers changed its name from Miniature Aero Sports New South Wales Inc. formally in February 2015. It is the State Association of Model Aviation Clubs that are the place of Radio Controlled Model Aviation within New South Wales, Australia. This covers all types of model aviation including helicopters, gliders, jets, quad copters, sea planes to name but a some of the range.

Aeromodellers also represents the interests of its many club members on a National level through its affiliation with the Model Aeronautical Association of Australia Inc MAAA. Over 95 Model Aviation Clubs are currently registered with Aeromodellers NSW.

These Clubs have over 2300 members, making Aeromodellers NSW one of the largest of the Australian State Associations for model aviation.

Aeromodellers NSW holds monthly business meetings, which are open to all affiliated members and their guests. While most of the meetings are held in Sydney, we strive to hold 2-3 country meetings each year to enable members who live too far from Sydney to come have a meeting in their area. Attending any of these meetings is a great way to see your Association at work. It is also a good opportunity to ask questions or raise important issues that may be of concern to all modellers.

Please check the Calendar for the meeting dates or Contact Us.

Sydney meetings are held at Dooley’s Waterview Club, Cnr of Clyde Street and Silverwater Road, Silverwater.

OUR MISSION

AEROMODELLERS EXECUTIVE

Bob Carpenter

President

I started my Modelling career at 7 years old when I was introduced to my first Control Line aircraft at a friend’s place. This continued on and off for many years until in 1969, after marrying, I heard the unmistakable sound of a model aircraft engine.

Tim Nolan

Vice President & Secretary

My love affair with aeromodelling started in my teens. As a Coffs Harbour boy, I had the opportunity to enjoy open spaces and plenty of areas to fly my amateur attempts and start the journey of flight.

Steve Norrie

Treasurer

Steve looks after all our financial affairs.

Dave Lewis

Registrar

I was first introduced to radio control flight in 1973, a 2 Channel Glider (AeroFlyte Trident) and I mainly flew in the local park (as we did back then). But like most teens I found beer, cars and girls far more interesting.

Rob Masters

Newsletter Editor

My involvement with the sport is, I suspect similar to many. I have always been interested (obsessed maybe) in aircraft. One day when I was around 12 years old my father came home from work with a near new OS .19.

Aranka Nolan

Public Relations Officer

I guess not many of you had Flight as your wedding theme, but Tim and I did. We had some great models suspended in the roof above us as the reception unfolded. Pilots were encouraged to bring their models and fly, within the marquee, on the lawn and down on the beach. I had to ring a few wives to confirm it was true.

Don Costelloe

Assistant Secretary

Born 1947. Celebrated 50 years of aeromodelling a couple of years ago. I started with my grandfather building and flying rubber powered free flight models and have been an addict ever since.
