Academy of Model Aeronautics
The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA ) is a world-class association of modelers organized for the purpose of promotion, development, education and advancement of modeling activities. The Academy provides leadership, organization, competition, communication, protection, representation, recognition, education and scientific/technical development to modelers.
AMA operates two incredibly helpful websites:
AMA is the world's largest sport aviation organization, representing a membership of over 190,000 from every walk of life, income level and age group. 50,000 are youth members, and we have just celebrated $1 million in scholarships given.
AMA is a self-supporting, non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote development of model aviation as a recognized sport and worthwhile recreation activity.
AMA is an organization open to anyone interested in model aviation.
AMA is the official national body for model aviation in the United States. AMA sanctions more than a thousand model competitions throughout the country each year, and certifies official model flying records on a national and international level.
AMA is the organizer of the annual National Aeromodeling Championships, the world's largest model airplane competition.
AMA is the chartering organization for more than 2,500 model airplane clubs across the country. AMA offers its chartered clubs official contest sanction, insurance, and assistance in getting and keeping flying sites.
AMA is the voice of its membership, providing liaison with the Federal Aviation Administration, the Federal Communications Commission, and other government agencies through our national headquarters in Muncie, Indiana. AMA also works with local governments, zoning boards, and parks departments to promote the interests of local chartered clubs.
AMA is an associate member of the National Aeronautic Association. Through NAA, AMA is recognized by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI), the world governing body of all aviation activity, as the only organization which may direct U.S. participation in international aeromodeling activities.
