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

Science Olympiad (SO)

The Academy sponsors aviation events annually in the Science Olympiad and provides $5,000 annually to assist winners to attend secondary education. In addition, a member of the AMA Education Committee was the designer of the 2013 aviation challenge, a balsa catapult glider.

The AMA proudly supports Science Olympiad. One of the 2014 events is to create a rubber powered helicopter. This video shows how to bend a wire thrust bearing.
