MAAC – Model Aeronautics Association of Canada

The Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC), a member driven organization (12,000 members) is the national governing body for model aviation. Affiliated through the Aero Club of Canada (ACCto the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI), we support and promote recreational and competitive model flying, both locally and internationally.

We work with local and Federal levels of government to protect the rights, radio frequencies and flying fields of our members. We provide third party liability insurance for all of our members, provided that they fly according to our established safety protocols. Developing and publicizing comprehensive safety procedures is one of our highest priorities. A network of 360 individual clubs throughout Canada facilitates the activities. Whether you are a small child with an inexpensive and simple model, an adult with a complicated scale model or a retiree embarking on a new hobby, MAAC welcomes you as a member.
