F5J AMA Support

In order for the AMA to approve F5J as a supported event, there are a number of requirements to be satisfied. The US F5J Tour board is currently working on the logistics of this effort. One of the requirements is to provide a list of AMA pilots that would be seriously interested in participating in a Team Selection event. In order to satisfy this requirement we need to collect the names, AMA numbers and email addresses for interested pilots. We will be conducting this survey through August 31, 2017. Note that this is NOT a registration for the F5J TS Event, but is a list of interest. If you are interested and seriously considering participation in the F5J TS event to be held at a TBD location in 2018, you can add your name to the list at

Thanks - Jim

Just plain ridiculous. Sir.

Would it make sense to start the 2019 f5j team program now? For readers unfamiliar with AMA team programs membership in a team program is typically $20 per world champs payable to the AMA. The AMA gets a list of serious interested members that way and holds onto that money to release to the team before the world champs (aka all that money goes to the team). Folks who are team program members get voting rights on some team select process things and the right to enter the team selection (team programs can also add additional requirements if they want to such as qualifications etc).

No - my understanding of the process is that the AMA has to accept the event first - then you can begin that process. Until they approve it they will not accept program entries.
