Tell us your story!

The AMA’s History Project was created to tell the complete story of model aviation through a collection of histories of modelers, clubs, and companies. There are thousands of model aviation-related clubs in the US, but our program only has the histories of a few in our online collection! Please help us document the history of modeling clubs by sharing your stories with us. You help us by adding to the overall history of American modeling clubs, and we help you by drawing attention to your club and potentially attracting new members.

Telling us about your club is as simple as 1-2-3!

  1. Print out the club history writing guide from our web site.
  2. Write as much as you can about the club. Make sure to read and complete the consent form, which is the last page of the guide.
  3. Mail the completed club history writing guide (with completed consent form) and additional materials to: Academy of Model Aeronautics, Attn: History Project, 5151 E. Memorial Dr., Muncie IN 47302, or send it via email to


  1. Not so long ago, AMA was collecting stories from individuals. I have finally found a photo of the model in my story, but I have lost your e-mail on how to access the story site.
    Do you still want a personal story?
    ( I was a member (501356) for several years, but I let it lapse when the county took our field to “restore” it to a swamp.)

    1. I believe you are refering to AMA’s Generations of Flight. You can find more information, as well as submit a photo, at

  2. My Dad was a member in the 1950’s. His name was Dell Campbell & his member number was 1156. He lived in Odessa, TX at the time. I have a pic of him with his planes. How can I share it? Do your archives go back that far? I would like to have any info about his membership that is available… Join date, end date, dues paid, address, etc.. Other Odessa, TX members (ie flying buddies).
    Thank you!!!
