Welcome to GMA!
OUR CLUB: A private membership club made up of 260 plus members and one of the premier flying sites in the nation, we are committed to promoting our great hobby and making an impact on our community as a valuable resource. Complete with 22 covered workbenches, our site includes 66 acres of land with an 800 ft. fully maintained Asphalt runway and parallel Bermuda Grass runway. We can handle just about any and all types and sizes of model aircraft. On any given day you will see electric foamies, electric & glow planes, 40% IMAC pattern planes and even turbine jets.
OUR PURPOSE: GMA sponsors an Aeronautics and Rocketry Club from a nearby high school. The team uses the GMA Airfield as their preparation and practice site. This year they won first in the USA and second in the World. GMA gives annually to Muscular Dystrophy, supports the Boys and Girls Club of Forsyth County, helps our area Boys and Girls Scouts achieve aviation merit badges and holds community events to promote aviation and encourage RC Flying. The Georgia Model Aviators organization has twice hosted the annual Aero Design East competition (sponsored by SAE International and Lockheed Martin) where 75 Universities from several different countries compete in a design build and fly event as a capstone project in their college aerospace studies. This event propels students into their careers.
OUR COMMUNITY: Although we are a private membership, our gates are wide open to the visiting public. The community has an open invitation to visit, watch and even enjoy a picnic lunch with us as we fly. Our members love to answer your questions and explain more about our hobby. We want to be a positive, encouraging influence and a friendly neighbor to Forsyth and the surrounding counties because we fully embrace the importance of re-investing all that we have been given.
Come on by, we look forward to seeing you!
