The Twin Cities Model Aero Club has served those interested in Aero Modeling in the Albury Wodonga area for over thirty years. Members of the club construct and fly all types of model aircraft. Our organization caters for a complete cross section of the community, the common interest being flying model aircraft.
Members come from all walks of life, from professionals, shift workers, pensioners, retirees and students. Such is the interest in aero modeling that we count several pilots and aircraft engineers among our members. Many aero modelers, particularly those building and flying radio controlled model aircraft, have progressed to a career either in the military or airlines, either as pilots or engineers.
Flying takes place at the club’s own flying field a few kilometres north of Albury, this facility is available seven days a week, although most activity takes place on weekends, particularly on Sundays. The flying field, in addition to its 3 runways also has a club house, toilets and shade shelter. An area where smaller electric models and free flight models can be flown is also provided. A new addition to the site is a world class facility for flying control line models comprising an 80 metre concrete circle. This mini airfield has been developed over recent years by club members with assistance from the Model Aeronautical Association of Australia, the Victorian Model Aircraft Association and Albury Council.
