Just a reminder that an up to date A1/A3 Open Certificate is needed to complete the MACI and club membership process. We know that it can be a barrier for many people, so contact us to get started. Once you have the A1/A3 Cert and set up your MACI profile, it becomes much easier the following year. If you feel confident enough, see our (How to Guide) to joining.
The Cork Model Aero Club (est.1949) is one of, if not the longest established model flying club in Ireland. Its main aim is to promote the enjoyment and safe flying of model aircraft in a friendly environment. We encourage people from all groups to get involved as it is a wonderful hobby that will stay with you for life.
We have a number of sites (indoor and outdoor) in Co. Cork, catering for most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's) such as, "gliders", "helicopters", "quadcopters", and "fixed wing planes". We fly mainly on weekends and often during the week, weather permitting.

Membership of a club is the best way of getting maximum enjoyment out of the hobby. You will meet plenty of like minded people, but also benefit through:
Membership of the Model Aeronautics Council of Ireland (MACI), where you will get the latest news on activity around the country.
Insurance from the MACI. This insures you to fly at the club site, but also on the sites of other clubs, affiliated with the MACI.
A safe environment to fly in, where you have access to instructors and experienced pilots.
Adherence to current regulations as managed by the, "Irish Aviation Authority (IAA)".

Millstreet Model Show (Sunday 8th October 2023)
We participated in a fantastic model show, ran by the Millstreet Vintage Club, and hosted by K&L Deliveries in their Millstreet warehouse. We were lucky enough to be interviewed by Cork Music Station - who kindly supplied us with the recording to place on our site.
