The AMA Intro Pilot Program gives clubs the opportunity to introduce non-AMA members to aeromodeling while providing liability insurance coverage.

The AMA and EAA are working together to educate and ensure safety among hobbyists

This page serves as a resource for our education outreach volunteers, as well as any model aviation educator that is seeking guidance. Here you will find ideas, activities, and suggestions on how to deliver and promote our education outreach program at home, in the classroom, or out on the flying field!

This is a wonderful example of a club reaching out in the community to provide support to a local middle school competing in the Science Olympiad

This presentation is a useful tool for clubs to present safe operation of sUAS

Hosting a club open house is a great way to get the community involved in model aviation!

A partnership with the Santa Fe Dam RC Modelers (AMA 988) and the Knights of the Round Circle (AMA 2389).

The first model aviation club was formed in 1908.. by a woman! Ms. Todd, from her childhood, was always interested in how things worked. She would disassemble toys, typewriters, and was once even scolded for using her mother’s scissors to cut wire. This interest in tinkering led her to design and patent a type writer copy holder in 1896. By the turn of the century her interest turned to aviation, and she began to experiment with rubber-powered models and airships. In 1906 she displayed one of her aircraft at the Aero Club of America show, held in Grand Central Palace, New York.
