AMA Recognized as the Focal Point for Aero-modeling
Date:1/13/2014

Muncie, IN (PRWEB) January 13, 2014

On Saturday, January 11th, the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) entered into an agreement establishing the platform upon which the AMA and the FAA will jointly work to ensure the continued safe operation of model aircraft in the National Airspace System. James Williams, executive manager of the FAA Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration Office, and AMA President Bob Brown signed the memorandum of understanding on the main stage of the annual AMA Expo in Ontario, CA.

AMA’s detailed safety procedures promote safe model operations and serve as an excellent resource for AMA members and non-member model enthusiasts alike. Under this agreement, the AMA will serve as a focal point for the aero-modeling community, the hobby industry, and the FAA to communicate relevant and timely safety information. The Academy will continue to maintain its comprehensive safety program for its members and will work to foster a positive and cooperative environment with the aero-modeling community toward the FAA and any applicable regulations.

“The execution of this document puts the Federal Aviation Administration one step closer to fully enacting the Special Rule for Model Aircraft established as part of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012,” said AMA Executive Director Dave Mathewson. “Still to be realized is FAA’s formal recognition of the AMA as a community-based organization as described by Congress and the agency’s acknowledgment of AMA’s Safety Program as a means of substantiating the safety guidelines and overseeing the operation of recreational unmanned aircraft.”

The AMA has served as the national body for model aviation for 77 years. During that time, the aeromodeling community has achieved an excellent safety record through adherence to AMA’s National Model Aircraft Safety Code and its comprehensive safety program. The efficacy of AMA’s community-based safety program was acknowledged by Congress in the 2012 FAA reauthorization bill, now Public Law 112-95.

The Academy of Model Aeronautics has been the nation’s collective voice for approximately 164,000 modelers in 2,400 clubs in every state and Puerto Rico since 1936. A nonprofit association headquartered in Muncie IN, AMA sanctions more than 2,000 events and competitions each year under the auspices of the National Aeronautic Association.
