For many years the pilots of radio controlled aircraft have used Collie’s playing fields, farm paddocks and anywhere with enough open space as landings fields in pursuit their sport. In 2004 enthusiasts got together and formed the Collie Aero Modellers Inc (CAMI) and in the same year they became an incorporated body.
On August 10th, 2004 the club was successful in an application to the Shire of Collie requesting the use of a disused field in the Buckingham area, where the club is based today.
Today, CAMI is a community based group of radio controlled aircraft enthusiasts. Membership includes men and women of all ages made up of full and ancillary members. Full members are generally pilots that require the insurance afforded by the club’s incorporation with the State governing body, Aeromodellers Western Australia (AWA). Ancillary members are usually non-pilot enthusiasts that help in the many activities of the club, and join in the social scene of the club.
The Club is focused on the safety of members and the general public who attend the Buckingham flying field and the enjoyment of those who attend. One of the primary goals of the club is to promote Aeromodelling as a safe and fun activity for the whole family.
