The purpose of this page is to provide more information about some of the special interset groups that our members are interested and involved in. For now it seems that MAASA and LSA are the main groups that our members are involved in. The links below will provide our members with more specific info about these groups. The idea is to expand these links to other interest groups as well.
Large Scale Aerobatics
Scale aerobatics is aerobatic operation of a radio controlled scale model of full-sized aerobatic competition plane. While other disciplines within the radio control community fly aerobatics, the requirement for scale aerobatic is that the model be replicas of types known to have competed in International Aerobatic Club (IAC) competition. A wide choice of competitive planes are available to today’s model in both kit and ready-to-fly versions.
Model Aerobatic Association of South Africa
TPrecision Aerobatics is an addiction as well as an international sport that demands discipline. As with all addictions you need to TRY it before you can become hooked.
You need to understand the rules of the sport which are defined by the FAI Sporting code and amended for local use in the Sporting Code.
To become a proficient Aerobatic pilot takes years of practise and dedication but the improvement to your flying skills will be immediately apparent and the self satisfaction as each new skill is learnt and perfected will be on-going and can culminate in representing South Africa at the F3A World Championships
Joining MAASA is as easy as completing the application form and paying the prescribed membership fee.
