income.

I was just wondering if AMA license #1 still alive and flying.

Life is short, Mario; don't sweat the small stuff. And if you prefer to
sweat it, better to pick on something else.

On my 2003 AMA card, just below the "membership card" number, it says ....
get ready for this ... "License Number"!

Re: AMA license numbers

The number on the card/license does not reflect the longevitiy of the
holder. If you become a CD, you can get a lower number. Our club CD
had his 5 digit number truncated to 4 digits when he go his CD
credentials.

My number dates back to 1970!

Mario, you blew it on the "license" issue, but you just won't quit, will
you? Now you claim to know what people are "fantasizing" based on their
apparel. If they are not flying real planes, perhaps they are flying
imaginary ones. If you can see them and touch them, they probably are real.
I do agree, however, with your assessment of the AMA folk.

Re: AMA license numbers

Interesting dates when you consider AMA President's term is for 3 years.

Trivia question Are the life members numbers such as L2 different from just
AMA No 2?

Re: AMA license numbers

Yes, the life numbers are different and there is an R series, as I recall,
that shows support for the Museum. Then there are the vanity numbers as
well.

Number 0001 may still be in use but it may not be in the hands fo the original owner. AMA reuses lower numbers as memberships laps. Also three digits are reserved for LIFE memembers, four digits are for Contest Directors. My original AMA was 80026, when I became a CD I dropped a zero and becam 8026 because it was available. When my ex wanted to start flying in 1984 we requested what ever number was still available nearest to 80026 and they sent 80028 so it looked like we joined at the same time.

I might add that 80028 is avaiilable again.

Re: AMA license numbers

LOL

I wish you would tell the AMA that, they keep sending me a renewal each
year. The system has changed through the years and a fire caused the loss of
some records. Most of the 3 digits that I know are CD's and/or Leader
Members. I understand they will no longer issue 3 digit numbers, except to
prior holders that are being re-instated. Most of the life members that I
know have the L before their number. Life member numbers are reissued when
the holder 'passes'. As I understand it, that is how VP Jim McNeill came to
be L2. disclaimer: All of this is subject to change without notice.

Re: AMA license numbers

While McNeill (VP Dist V) is now AMA Life Member (L-2) MA October 1989
issue* shows Jack G. Lowe as Life Member L-2 (now deceased). Jim McNeill
was show as life member L-9. After Lowe died McNeill applied for the lower
number and received it. Since then the EC (no doubt with McNeill's vote)
moved to no longer reissue** those low numbers upon the death of the
original holder.

*Life Member list as of 1989 (Model Aviation - October 1989 page 115)

L-1 Philip J. Baugh, Jr.
L-2* Jack G. Lowe
L-3 Joseph ????
L-4 ????
L-5 Jeremiah Courtney
L-6* Matthew Sullivan
L-7 Ed Manulkin
L-8 Leon Shulman
L-9 Jim McNeill

I am checking back with Ms. Pierce to see if the above is correct.

Hey Red

Does that make him the only living-dead life member?

Thank you, but in case I wasn't clear, it's possible that they are facetiously
labeling AMA membership cards as "licenses" to indulge a common fantasy that
the cards are actually pilot's licenses. That the fantasy is common among AMA
members is evidenced by the practice that some here have of proudly displaying
their AMA numbers at the end of their posts. It's as if they had to study and
practice hard and pass a difficult test to earn their cards, rather than
simply write a $58 check and drop it in the mailbox.

It is of course also possible that the folks running AMA are thoroughly
enthralled in this fantasy themselves.
