The council has a vacancy for an Assistant Secretary, required to assist the secretary as and when required, to provide minutes of council meetings and possibly help to manage the website and social media.


If you think you can help, please contact any member of the council.


It is important that all vacancies are filled in order that the council can work quickly and effectively in order to ensure that r/c flying is safe and enjoyable for all members.

Covid Restrictions - SAA Advice

12th March 2021 


SAA Release – R/C Flying to recommence!
Due to the slight easing of COVID restrictions by the Scottish Government, the SAA are delighted to announce that as from Friday 12th March, R/C flying in groups of no more than 15 many recommence on the proviso that the document entitled: COVID Sports Specific Guidelines for the Scottish Aeromodellers Association Rev 7-dd446 is fully adhered to. This is in draft form at the moment, but I am happy that if the guidelines detailed in the document are followed, then we will be good to go. Any further relaxation of the restrictions will be communicated in the same way.
Enjoy and Happy Landings
Steve McDonald
SAA Chairman

CAA Registration and Renewal 2021


On renewal or registration of the CAA registration system members may find that they are prompted for new information, which was not asked for last year. The new fields are, Telephone, Insurer and Policy number, these are not mandatory to complete and most people are not aware of their Insurer and Policy number. You may also find that if you are changing from the SAA registering/renewing your CAA registration to going on-line direct you may be prompted to take the on-line test, which again has changed as the new test now covers a 5-year period. If you have any questions please contact the SAA Membership Secretary who will be happy to advise you (contact details of SAA Officials can be found on the SAA contacts page).
