The AMA has been awarded two grants from the ARCONIC Foundation, formerly ALCOA. The results have been AeroLab (see the video below) and our current project to provide aviation education kits to Arconics worldwide for use in classrooms.
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.
