The AMA welcomes you to discover flight!

Are you interested in knowing what the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) has to offer? This video, which was created by AMA's Mark Benson, showcases the various types of model airplanes that members of the AMA community fly and shows how fun flying is!

AMA's National Electric Fly-in held at the International Aeromodeling Center in Muncie, Indiana.

In this Hobby Express video, Mike Hines demonstrates how to cover a model airplane wing.

This student-produced video details the students' research, using a student-built subscale flying-wing sailplane that proved that proverse yaw can be achieved just as birds achieve it -- through wingtip aerodynamics alone.

This video and accompanying article were produced by Atlanta’s PBS station, PBA30, and features the AMA club Georgia Model Aviators. Georgia Model Aviators is a private club of almost 300 members dedicated to building and flying radio control planes.

Control Line (CL) model aviation can trace its roots back to the early tethered experiments of Victor Tatin, whose compressed-air powered model was flown round-the-pole in 1879. In the 1920s and 1930s aeromodelers began to take this a step further and actually try and control their whip and powered aircraft in flight. Learn more here!
