HOW TO BECOME A 2017 MEMBER OF THE
SILENT ELECTRIC FLYERS of SAN DIEGO
PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE FILLING OUT THE APPROPRIATE FORM AND PAYING DUES
Membership for SEFSD costs $45 for the calendar year (January 1st through December 31st). Additional family members in the same household pay $10 each for the same calendar year.
To join the SEFSD flying club, you must be a current member of the ACADEMY OF MODEL AERONAUTICS . AMA Membership provides you and our club important liability insurance coverage. We do not accept the Park Pilot AMA or 3 month free trial membership as it does not provide the amount of liability insurance coverage needed for SEFSD. You must have your 2017 AMA Membership completed before proceeding.
There are many members whose AMA membership expires December 31, 2016. When you renew your AMA membership, it will not expire until December 31, 2017 and your 2017 SEFSD Membership badge is good for the entire year.
---Important Note for New AMA Members (whose AMA membership does not expire on December 31st)
Unlike the SEFSD, AMA starts their annual membership the month that you sign up. Consequently, you will have two expiration dates in any given year, one for SEFSD and one for the AMA. You will be issued two separate SEFSD membership cards corresponding to those dates. For those new AMA members it can be a bit confusing. Your AMA membership validation is checked monthly by the SEFSD Membership Coordinator. You will not be able to fly if your AMA membership has expired. For example: if your AMA membership expires August 31st, you may not fly starting in September until you renew with AMA. If you do not renew your AMA membership until September 15, you will have no liability coverage and consequently you are not allowed to fly with SEFSD from September 1st through September 14th. If you renew with no lapse in AMA membership, a new badge will be sent with your new AMA expiration date. Your membership coordinator will also send you an email the month your AMA membership expires so you can avoid any lapse in AMA coverage. The names of those who have let their membership with AMA expire will be given to the SEFSD Board of Directors.
