go to
www.modelairplane.org

this is the main site for ama and it will explain everything you need to know.
you can even sign up for it there.
but basicly it is insurance in case of a mishap,not for your models but for injury or property damage
at a sanctioned field. plus other benefits as well. smiley-happy088 .
i have been a member for 26 years and have seen in the past the ama at work ,,,its great

Being an AMA member has lots of benefits and being able to fly at funfly's and join local clubs is awesome, but one thing to watch out for with clubs is sometimes the Airplane guys don't like the Heli guys too much, a few of my local clubs are like that, the plane guys don't even want to talk to you if they know you fly helis

Pretty much the same here in UK orange83 Also found a couple of heli clubs near me that don't really give you the time of day unless you are a fully accomplished pilot and have a Trex or Scale heli redface

The age old story with clubs, they always seen to have a pecking order. I just dont like it at all
always someone to tell ya your censored aint right or ya cant do it like that YAMER YAMER YAMER.
And thats why we fly at the bomber field out here as long as no one is acting a fool and ya have an
AMA card. Hell we even sit around after words and have some cold suds and tell each other how
much we all fly like school grils and that all I have to say about thaaaat.

Yea for the love of Pete get your AMA today cause it helps us all and will save your a hole if ya were
to [GOD FORBID HIT SOMEONE OR SOMETHING WITH YOUR HELI/PLANE] Also the AMA is working hard to keep us free from the crap that comes out of DC on a daily bases to. your membership fee
helps in alot of other ways as well.

I think one of the complaints that RC Airplane flyers have against us Heli flyers is when we just hover directly over the middle of the runway for 5 minutes and they can't use the runway. If only one Heli flyer does that, the airplane flyers are mad at all of us, forever.

There is a nice field across town from me that has a nice grass runway, and a separate heli area off to the side of the same runway. Seems to work well. Helis can hover off to the side, or fly over the runway, depending on their skill.
