Introducing the AMA Alpha! The Alpha is a rubber-powered airplane that provides amazing flight duration, controlled flight, and can easily be disassembled and taken home to fly again.

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

Spreading the love and fun of aeromodeling is vital to its survival. That is why the AMA would like to recognize Youth members who do just this.

The AMA has partnered with United Way of Delaware County to provide the Take Off & Read Challenge to local schools.

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!
