When we started the club , there was just a field and minimal facilities. Now we have a club compound, with a clubhouse, barbecue area, children's play area and a large toilet block with shower facilities. The field has been transformed by pop-up irrigation to give us a huge expanse of lovely green grass. A bitumen strip 150 metres long has been laid so that jet planes and large scale models can take off and land safely. The first Jet Action was in June 1994. Profits from this event and other club events have been ploughed back into the club and facilities. Construction of the control line facility in one corner of our field is now complete. The control line facility is of World Class Standard and attracts interstate and international competition. The club has many members, some are also affiliated with other clubs.

Club meetings are held every two months on the Sunday at the flying field. Most Sundays the club runs an instruction program. This program is for beginners who wish to learn to fly and attain their Bronze Wings and for flyers who wish to advance to Gold Wings standard. "Buddy box" facilities are available - this way a beginner can fly safely, reassured that no harm will come to the model aircraft.

The club holds one major event each year Jet Action - which is one of the major jet events in Australia.

Adelaide Model Aerosport - Objectives and purpose: To promote the development of model aviation in South Australia by, the promotion, organisation and encouragement in the building, flying and development of model aircraft and model aeronautics generally within, and in conjunction with MASA.
