Membership Information

Membership is open to all persons interested in the sport/hobby of model aircraft flying.

In accordance with club by-laws and an agreement with landowner DJ Cattle & Land LLC, members are required to join the Academy of Model Aeronautics and complete a Hold Harmless and Indemnification Agreement.

Annual ORCA dues are $50 each Senior (over 19 years of age) member. Dues for additional family members living in the same household is $20. Junior membership (those through age 19) is free. All dues are pro-rated quarterly. A one-time initiation fee of $25 is charged for each individual or one family membership. Individuals on active military duty and Junior members will not be charged the initiation fee.


Joining ORCA is a simple three-step process. Also, current Federal Aviation Administration rules require that all model aircraft be registered with the FAA - see below.
