BAMS is an Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) chartered Gold Leader RC model airplane flying club located in Boerne, Texas. Our flying field is located within Kendall County's Joshua Springs Park, north of San Antonio (take IH-10 exit 533, to Welfare).

These are some of our recent and upcoming events:
October 14, 2017BAMS' Fall Fun Fly was a big success with over $900 raised. Dan and company in the kitchen crew got rave reviews for quality and quantity. A good time was had by all and the flying was great.
September 2, 2017In keeping with BAMS' long history of community service, at the September 2, 2017 meeting, the membership voted unanimously to donate $500 to hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Seadrift, TX. In addition to acting as on-site legal aid to the residents, Dan delivered the donation (along with nearly $250 in private donations by individual club members) to the Seadrift Community Relief Distribution Center on the 5th.
April 8 & 9, 2017BAMS' Spring Fun Fly was a resounding success with $1,800 raised for the Friends of the Boerne Library - and don't forget the great prizes and deals taken home by the winners. Pictures will soon be posted in the gallery.
October 8, 2016BAMS' Fall Fun Fly was a great success, thanks to Frank's tireless efforts. Everyone enjoyed the flying and food. Our AMA District VIII AVP, Ed Valls, attended and presented the club's Silver Leader Club certificate and plaque. BAMS is proud to join the other 150 Leader clubs across America. Check out the AMA article here and take a look at the video of the month. More pictures will be posted in the Gallery soon.
August, 2016Work on our field improvements has produced great results. The field has been widened, taxiways added, and a sun/weather shelter has been built. Plus, Chris and his crew have manicured the site to golf course standards. Check out this aerial view. A big shout-out to all those members that worked on this project during the summer heat!
