Welcome To BAMS - The Boerne Area Model Society
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 modern and beautiful Joshua Springs Park, north of San Antonio (take IH-10 exit 533, to Welfare). For information on finding the field and to see our airspace, click here to go to the map. These two links show the full NOAA or Air Sports Network weather forecast for the field. Another good source for wind information is Sailflow.

Check out our introductory flight program - BAMS provides everything you need: radio, plane, and flight instructor. We invite you you to come out to our club meeting on the first Saturday of every month at 9:00 AM at the flying field - everyone's welcome.
