AMA National Model Aviation Day!

National Model Aviation day is right around the corner! Thousands are planning to attend an event to celebrate the hobby.


Join the Academy of Model Aeronautics Foundation for the fifth annual National Model Aviation Day

From the AMA

Date - August 12, 2017 National Model Aviation Day was created to encourage RC clubs to celebrate the hobby and share it with the public. Our chartered RC clubs have also been asked to conduct a fundraiser to provide assistance to a worthy cause. The AMA is devoted to inspiring the young and young-at-heart to pursue a hobby that will inspire creativity and advanced learning through the use of hands-on applications. The purposes of the Foundation will be to fundraise and make grants to AMA to support its charitable and educational programs and services.

Why celebrate ModelAviationDay?

One day a year we want all AMA members to fly and celebrate model flying. Our team has provided several great resources on the National Model Aviation Day website club resources page to help your club promote its event. If your organization has never promoted a special activity, we make it easy. Itís so easy to participate. All you have to do is sign up on the National Model Aviation Day website,

This is your chance to support a great cause!

This yearís charity is the AMA Foundation. As a supporter of AMAís benevolent programs, your organization will help us inspire youth to get active in model flying, provide scholarships to students, award grants to clubs seeking assistance, and help support the national flying site at the International Aermodeling Center in Muncie, Indiana.

Each registered club receives stickers, is listed on the national event map.

National Model Aviation Day is a great opportunity for clubs to promote their groups with local and state governments by requesting a city, county, or state proclamation.

We are all in this together!

Model flying is our sport, hobby, and something we want to continue for years. This day receives a lot of positive publicity and shows the media and the public how great model flying is. Help us celebrate by registering today!
