Welcome to the site of the Hobart Model Aero Club. The club is devoted to the hobby and sport of model aircraft construction and flight. Members have a broad range of interests that includes Sport, Pattern, Pylon, Old Timers, Scale, Electric, Jets, and Gliders. Although most members fly radio control aircraft we also have a strong following of control line flyers.
We have a membership of about 70, with a wealth of knowledge and experience which members are only too happy to pass on to the newcomer. Club members can provide advice and guidance on construction of models, preparation for flight and flight instruction. The club has excellent training facilities, including trainer aircraft, and when combined with the expert tuition our instructors provide it's never been easier to learn to fly.
We're located near Richmond, 20km north east of Hobart and members of the public are welcome at all times. The most popular flying times are Saturday and Sunday mornings. There is also mid week flying for those that can. We're a friendly group, so why not come for a visit.
No matter your age or ability, interests in scale planes to quadcopters and First Person View. We cater for all RC aeromodellers
Whether you are a weekend flyer, or a mid week flyer, there is always a buz of activity and new friends and old friends to catch up with

Fire Mitigation Project (Fire Trailer)
The Clubs Fire Mitigation Project (Fire Trailer) has recently been completed. A large thank you goes out to the Clarence City Council provided the club with a $1500.00 grant in 2015 and the RACT also providing $650.00 from their Community Fund. The Clarence City Council funds went towards the purchase of the Firefighting pump, tank and hoses with the RACT funds covering the costs of the trailer. The completion of this trailer will hold us in readiness for the dry Summer yet to come. Shown in the pictures behind one of the Clubs mowers, the trailer can also be hitched to Quad Bikes and Cars as required. It is envisaged that the trailer may be put to other uses such as spraying the perimeter fences for weeds and long grass. Also a big thank you to all the members and committee members who worked on this project.
