The AMA Education Department proudly recommends the following AUTHORIZED AMA STE(A)M PROGRAM partners who promote the highest standards of STEM/STE(A)M education utilizing model aviation as an integral part of the curriculum.

Model Aviation Student Club, or MASC, is a chartering program for school aeromodeling clubs!

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 first mass produced model airplane engine was designed and built by 16-year old Bill Brown, Jr. His friend, Maxwell Bassett designed model aircraft to test the engines. In 1933, flying with a gas engine, Max won the Mulvihill, Cabin model Stout, and the Moffeft International Trophy because the rules did not yet stipulate the type of power.
