Welcome to the Fern Prairie Modelers!

Fern Prairie Modelers (FPM) is a model airplane club chartered by the internationally recognized national modeling organization, the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). The club is open to anyone with an interest in model aviation.

The club was founded around 1981 with a loose association of five charter members flying at a site that is now Grove Field in Camas. By February 1982, the membership had doubled and within a year became an AMA chartered club with 19 members. Currently, the club has over 100 members.

Visitors are always welcome at the general membership meeting held on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM. The meetings are held at the Camas Community Center at 1718 SE 7th, Camas, Washington.

Our model flying site is leased from the Port of Camas-Washougal. All site improvements and facilities were installed by club members and we take great pride in maintaining and operating one of the best flying sites in the greater Portland metropolitan area. FPM hosts several competition events and participates in other community activities throughout the year.

Most of our members are interested in radio controlled sport model airplanes. However, there are also members interested in other areas of model aviation, including scale models, gliders, helicopters, pylon racers, control line and free flight modeling. The club operates an active flight training program with regularly scheduled training sessions.

While all users of the flying site must be a club member or guest of a club member, visitors are welcome at the site anytime club members are present. Please closely supervise any children that accompany you and comply with the safety rules that are posted. Unleashed pets are not permitted at the flying site.
