The AMA and ALARIS Unmanned Systems have teamed together with a common commitment to developing and promoting tools that improve the safety of UAS operations.
Public Safety Training
This hands-on training course will provide public safety officers the knowledge needed to use UAS technology safely and effectively in their daily jobs.
DJI, the world’s leading maker of unmanned aircraft systems, and the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), the nation’s leading voice for aircraft modelers, have partnered to launch a joint program to promote safe and responsible drone operations, train public safety officers to use drones effectively, and support educational outreach efforts.
UAS4STEM: Search and Rescue Challenge
Introducing a new STEM program from the Academy of Model Aeronautics, UAS4STEM!
LiPo (Lithium-Polymer) batteries are a popular means for powering our electric models. As is the case when working with any power source, there are a few things that modelers need to know to stay safe and keep their batteries performing.
This online training course will provide commercial UAS pilots the knowledge needed to pass the FAA’s required Remote Pilot—small Unmanned Aircraft Systems certification standards test.

Leaders, industry experts, and end-users will gather at Drone World Expo in the heart of Silicon Valley to present real-world solutions to your business and environmental challenges.
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!
