Default RE: what is maac

ORIGINAL: jeffrey_heslop

is it just a group or is it insurance?
It is a group of fliers, set up to control the hobby in Canada, they also provide support to members and set the rules for safety and protocols at member flying sites, also each member has insurance coverage if flying at a sanctioned field.
If you live in Victoria there is only one MAAC Sanctioned field, and the membership is expensive and severely restricted.
Most fliers in Victoria fly small to mid size electrics and use parks, school playing fields etc. obviously there is no insurance available for these fields from MAAC,
The nearest MAAC sanctioned field is in Parksville, the PDQ flyers, they have a web site www.pdqflyers.com/ are a friendly group and welcome new members i believe.
