Membership

Becoming a new member or renewing your membership with the East Valley Aviators R/C Club is easy!

Before getting started, there are a few important things to know
1) A current EVA member must sponsor new applicants. The EVA sponsor is responsible for informing new applicants and guests about EVA rules, transmitter control, flight line safety procedures, and general field security requirements.

2) Members and guests must abide by all AMA and EVA Club rules. The EVA rules have been provided to all members and are posted at the flying site. Questions about safety and Club rules should be directed to a Club Officer (see EVA main page for Officer contact information).

3) Members may sponsor guests to allow them to use the flying facilities and to introduce them to the Club. However, they must have a current AMA or MAAC insurance card. After a few visits, guests should make a decision on joining the Club. Students without AMA or MAAC insurance may fly three (3) times on a buddy cord with a Club Instructor. After an introductory lesson, they should be encouraged to join the AMA and EVA to proceed with their instruction.

4) EVA has a flight-training program. EVA is always in need of flight instructors and qualified applicants are encouraged to volunteer their assistance. Students should indicate their training needs on the application for membership.

EVA does not have partial or associate memberships and does not prorate dues for new members.
