The AMA provides the backbone for RC flying nationwide and is a valuable resource for information about RC flying. We have included links to information from their site for you to better understand the foundation of our AMA certified club field and its rules and regulations.
If you are enjoying the hobby and sport of RC flying, we encourage you to become a member of the AMA (a requirement of our club.)
