Welcome to KAMS website.

Kalamunda Aeronautical Model Society (Inc.) or KAMS began when a group of aero modellers flying with WARMS at Gibbs Road Jandakot, decided that there were enough of them from Kalamunda to form their own club.

The first flying field was on Water Board land at the end of Welshpool Road in Carmel. It was a cleared strip between trees but strong eddy currents made flying difficult.

The first meeting was in October 1975, when the idea of forming a club was discussed. In November 1975, the name for the club was decided, office bearers elected and fees set.Meetings were held at a member’s house for a while, and later in the Anglican hall in Kalamunda.

In July 1976 (when Neil Giggins and Ken Wansbrough joined) we moved to a farmer’s field in the foothills at Forrestfield at the end of Bruce Road. Lengths of rubber belting were laid out to use for a runway.

The membership grew, and we enjoyed five years at that site before the farmer told us to move on.
