ABOUT US

Minot Aircraft Modelers was chartered as a club in 1972 by eight charter members.  The first flying field was on County Road 14 southwest of Minot.  Later moved to the North Dakota State Fairgrounds and various other sites in between.  In 1991 14 acres of farm land was discovered 18 miles northeast of Minot that was for sale.  Quickly a group of dedicated members co-signed a loan to develop North Dakota's first club owned flying facility.  In 1994 the remaining 41 acres adjacent to the field became available which the club purchased and that produces income for the club to this day.  

Our club welcomes all types of aircraft.  Single engine, multi engine, turbine jets, helicopters, gliders, etc.  We have several events per year that aim at attracting the regions newest pilots along with events that cater to the seasoned pro.  In the spring of the year we host our yearly mall show, June is our Open House for potential members, and August is our annual fun fly.  MAM supports the Minot Civil Air Patrol’s youth initiatives as well. 

The club has instructor pilots to help newcomers with the intricacies of radio-controlled flight. In addition members are always happy to help beginners build their own models.
