Welcome to Port Lincoln Model Aerosport Club

Model Aircraft have been flown in the Port Lincoln Area for many years.
The Port Lincoln Model Flying Group was officially formed in 1975 by twelve aero-model devotees. The Club leased land opposite the Louth Bay turn off where flying was conducted on Saturdays at 2pm. A number of members were flying control line models, which can only fly in circles, controlled by the pilot at the other end of two strong wires.

FIRST STARTED

Model Aeronautical AssociationAeromodelling started in Australia in the early 1900s following the invention of the aeroplane.

However it was not until the 1930s that organised modelling groups appeared. Two rival groups formed in NSW, the MAA.
Model Aeroplane Association of Australia in 1930 and the MFC, Model Flying Club of Australia in 1931.
The two groups merged in 1947 to become the Model Aeronautical Association of Australia or MAAA.
The MAAA are the only national body in Australia recognised by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority as a model aviation Recreational Aviation Administrative Organisation.
Flying model aircraft is now recognised as a sport by the Australian Government, through the Australian Sports Commission.

FIRST NATIONAL COMPETITION

port lincoln model aerosport clubThe first national competition was held in 1938 and was organised as entertainment to coincide with Australia’s 150th Anniversary.

The competition was actually called the Grand International Model Aeroplane Championships and included indoor and outdoor Free Flight models only, a total of five events. It was hoped that model flyers from the UK and USA would come to the competition however it ended up being only Australian’s and New Zealander’s who attended.

World War 2 prevented any further flying competitions from occurring due to ban on model flying during the war, so as such, no competitions were held between 1939 and 1947.
