About

Welcome to Alice Springs Aeromodellers Inc. (formerly known as Alice Springs Radio Control Modellers, see History section). The club is located at Pedlar Field, Undoolya Station which is owned by the Hayes family. It was opened on November 17th, 1996.

The objective of ASA is to promote, protect, organise and encourage in every way the building, flying and development of model aircraft and model aeronautics generally in the Northern Territory. ASA is a member of Aeromodellers Northern Territory and the Model Aeronautical Association of Australia.

ASA’s Pedlar Flying Field is located to the east of Alice Springs on Undoolya Road. The field is 5.17km (2.8km of this is dirt road) from the Undoolya Road & Stott Terrace roundabout and is on the right-hand side of the road as you reach the sign that states Undoolya Station).

Here is a Google Maps link showing satellite view….Pedlar Field is on the right edge and the eastern side of Alice Springs is on the left.

The club flies every Sunday morning and at other times also.

We occasionally hold friendly competitions such as pylon racing, acrobatic flying, and fun flying events. Most types of aeromodelling are catered for, as reflected by the interests of the current membership. While radio control, fixed-wing, sport, glow or petrol-power models are  the most prevalent models flown, we see an increasing number of 3D flyers, electric-powered models, and winch-launched or electric-assisted gliders. Almost ready to fly (ARF) models are currently the most popular choice, though some members fly models that they have either built from scratch or from a kit.  The events are integrated in to the Sunday flying sessions without precluding casual flying activities. Members can use Pedlar Field at anytime during the week and without the worry of disturbing neighbours in our convenient, yet isolated, location.

During the year there are several club get-togethers, including BBQs at the club, festive dinners. indoor flying inside a hangar at the airport, night flying at Pedlar Field with illuminated model aeroplanes, working bees to improve facilities and to mow the area surrounding the runway.
