Academy of Model Aeronautics
We recommend AMA Modelers Insurance should be purchased at the time you purchase one of our aircrafts, of any design! Why should you join the AMA? To summarize:
First, it’s the AMA! It’s an organization by hobbyists, for hobbyists, and it fights to keep the hobby alive! The AMA is always trying to find and authorize flight zones, schedule events, negotiate safety codes and programs, and they even offer scholarships for our younger pilots. They push to make this hobby as pain-free and fun as it can be!
Second, membership in the AMA qualifies you for the best protection in the hobby. Nobody ever thinks about how much damage a bad crash can do until it’s too late, from grazing a bad power line, to losing sight and hitting someone. You never want to fly without protection.

AMA appointed to an FAA high-level advisory committee/team:
The FAA recently formed a high-level advisory committee/team to provide advice on key model aviation issues and to help identify challenges and prioritize improvements. We are excited to share that the AMA has been invited to be a part of this newly formed team. The inaugural meeting will be held on September 16 in Washington D.C.
