It is a self-supporting, non-profit group whose purpose is to promote development of model aviation as a recognized sport and worthwhile recreational activity. The AMA is open to anyone interested in model aviation and is the official national body for model aviation in the United States.

The AMA charters more than 2,500 model RC airplane clubs across the country. It offers official contest sanctions, 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. The AMA also works with local governments, zoning boards, and parks departments to promote the interests of local chartered RC airplane clubs.

The 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. It is the organizer of the annual National Aeromodeling Championships, the world’s largest model airplane competition. In addition to representation, insurance and information, the AMA offers its members a monthly color magazine, Model Aviation.

For liability insurance reasons, AMA membership in good standing is required in addition to MMAC club membership. An AMA application can be found in the Membership section of our page, or at the AMA website. For more information you can contact:
