On December 23, 2020, AMA signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Air Force Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (AFJROTC). The MOU outlines several collaborative efforts between AMA and the AFJROTC involving youth programs and curriculum. AMA has previously worked with the AFJROTC and is happy to build upon that relationship.

Currently, AMA is working with the FAA to identify AFJROTC flying sites located in controlled airspace. So far, approximately 100 AFJROTC units have submitted their information. In the coming months, AMA will assist each unit in completing a signed Letter of Agreement with their local air traffic control facility.

AMA is a proud supporter of the military and looks forward to our continued work with the AFJROTC to keep the national airspace safe and open to hobbyists and those operating for educational purposes.
