Club Info

With around 20 members, the Sands Model Airplane Club is one of the larger model airplane clubs in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. For meeting times and club events view the club calendar on the SMAC Media Center or email for more information.

The club has several designated instructors who are available to teach beginners. This instruction is offered free of charge by these members, in the spirit of promoting the hobby to newcomers. Even club members who are not dedicated instructors are always willing to lend a hand and extend advice to beginners.

New and prospective members are always invited to attend the monthly meetings, and everyone is always welcome to stop by the field and check out the action for themselves!

New members are always welcome to join. The club does require all members to hold a current membership with the AMA. Visit for more information on AMA memberships.
