The AMA welcomes you to discover flight!

This student-produced video details the students' research, using a student-built subscale flying-wing sailplane that proved that proverse yaw can be achieved just as birds achieve it -- through wingtip aerodynamics alone.

This video and accompanying article were produced by Atlanta’s PBS station, PBA30, and features the AMA club Georgia Model Aviators. Georgia Model Aviators is a private club of almost 300 members dedicated to building and flying radio control planes.

Automatic Collision Avoidance Technology (ACAT) is a program that was developed to improve and transition automatic collision avoidance technologies throughout the aviation industry. ACAT is designed to prevent a ground collision for fully functional aircraft by automatically taking control of the aricraft and flying it away from the ground.

Aviation enthusiasts will love this Emmy award-winning documentary. Convenient segments also make it ideal for educators who want to bring aspects of flight into the classroom.

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.

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!
