Eastern Shore Aeromodelers Club
AMA Chartered #4095

Home Field: 6035 Shiloh Camp Road, Hurlock, MD



Our mission is to enjoy and promote the art and sport of model aircraft flying and to develop interest within our local communities.

To encourage kids to get involved in a hobby that will promote their enthusiasm to learn and to have fun.

Our members range from 13 years old to 86 years old drawn together by a common interest in "things that fly".

Most Sundays when the weather is favorable there are 8 to 15 pilots at the field. Members are free to use the field at any time that suits them.


Eastern Shore Aeromodelers Club-

Open meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at the field April thru August and in the Old Hurlock Train Station during the winter months. Meeting time is 7:00 PM.

Anyone interested is urged to attend.





FAA Registration Required of All Model Aircraft Pilots

Current FAA regulations REQUIRE anyone who flies a model aircraft to register as a pilot. The $5 fee is waived if you register before January 19, 2016.

The law took effect December 21, 2015 and if you purchased a model after that date, you should register before flying that airplane (sUAS). Previously owned models can be flown by unregistered pilots until the February 19, 2016 deadline.

No matter what - you must register by February 19, 2016 if you intend to fly anything after that date.

The AMA is working on making the process simpler for AMA members, but currently the process is:

  • to go to the secure FAA Website; USE THIS LINK IF YOU WANT
  • establish a username and password;
  • login;
  • provide your name, address and email contact;
  • provide a credit card for paying the fee. This is a typical online secure shopping cart sort of process.

There is only one button to push for registration on the site - "Register my Drone" but click it even if you don't think your foamy or biplane is a drone. The fines if you get caught flying without your FAA number can ruin your day.
