2017 World Championship USA FAI Free Flight Team

The current United States FAI Free Flight team is preparing to compete in the World Championships at Szentes, Hungary on Aug 9 through Aug 11, 2017.

The AMA and the Team Selection Program’s financial support doesn’t cover the entire World Champion team costs. Therefore, we seek donations to make up some of that difference. Our goal is to raise funds to offset most of the airline cost (including model box charges) and rental car expense.

We are also excited that we are taking a junior assistant. This will be a great help to the team and provide incentive for our junior flyers to continue to be active once they age out of the junior program. Jace Pivonka was selected from three juniors that expressed interest in helping the team. Your donations will help cover Jace’s travel costs as well. The supporters (family members and friends) pay their own way.

There are two ways to donate:

  1. Tax deductible donation acknowledgement: call Colleen Pierce at AMA (800-435-9262, ext. 252) and donate using a MasterCard, VISA or Discover, donate via PayPal by using craigs@modelaircraft.org or send a check to AMA Headquarters designated for the Outdoor FF team: AMA Attention: Colleen Pierce, 5161 E Memorial Dr., Muncie, IN 47302
  2. Corporate-matched funds donation; These donations are not tax deductible. We will coordinate getting these donations to members of our FF community that have access to corporate matching fund plans. To do so, make a check out to Jim Parker, and send to: Jim Parker, 25018 Wintergreen Ct, Stevenson Ranch, CA 91381


In appreciation of the Corporate-matched donations, the following gifts are offered: For a donation of $100 or more, you can receive a Team cap. For a donation of $150 or more, you can receive a Team T-shirt AND Team cap. For a donation of $400 or more, you can receive a Team Polo Shirt AND a Team Cap. For a donation of $2000 or more, you can receive a Team Jacket (Eddie Bauer water proof).
