Joining AMRS

Postby joeman » Mon Apr 20, 2015 2:19 pm

Hi,
Hope this is a good place to ask.

If I join AMRS, can I rock up at any of club and fly my rockets?

I only ask because I've noticed that there seem to be fee schedules on some of the clubs...and not sure if this means one needs to pay for AMRS and also the club.

Thanks

Joe

Hi Joeman,

Good question
If you join an affiliated club you automatically become a member of AMRS and as such should be able to attend any AMRS sanctioned event and launch up to your certification level.

If you join as an affiliate member (individual) you should also be able to attend an AMRS sanctioned event and launch up to your certification level.

Various affiliated clubs have fee schedules to allow for their own growth and infrastructure, with a component of the club fee going to AMRS for provision of the insurance coverage.

Just on the AMRS insurance coverage, it is a very real policy with a $20 million AU limit.
The certificate of currency is provided to all Ordinary Members (affiliated clubs) or Affiliate Members on request.

Regards
Why Limit Yourself?

Seems a good place to ask, does the above work in reverse? I'm a bit confused about the ordinary and affiliate memberships, for instance I have joined QRS and would like to fly HPR in the future, will I have to join AMRS and pay a membership on top of my local club membership?

Thanks

If you joined QRS then you are already an AMRS member and covered if you want to certify. I certified before AMRS existed so had to join Tripoli, but since then a lot of great work has been done to bring AMRS into existance. Which means you get the saving of not having to pay for separate HPR insurance.
