The Introductory Pilot Program is a great opportunity for clubs to introduce non-AMA members to the fun of aeromodeling. Club-designated instructors can teach the interested novices the ins and outs of areomodeling hands-on for a period of 60 consecutive days.
What a great way to expose novices to this wonderful hobby/sport and a useful tool to increase your club membership!
With this in mind, the $5 annual registration fee for instructors has been discontinued starting with the 2013 membership year. Instructors must still be designated by clubs; however, they will keep that status until AMA Headquarters is otherwise notified.
For more details, please review the program information posted on our website at www.modelaircraft.org/files/917.pdf.
That’s great! Since the fee has been waived/ended, my club will be signing up some volunteers and offering this program to prospective pilots/modelers in the future.
This is a great program for clubs and now it is even better. Thanks AMA for supporting our hobby and members.
