Safety: It’s part of AMA’s DNA. The model aviation community has always looked to the AMA to create safety practices. Starting in 1936, AMA was focused on keeping our model aviation competition community safe.
As time passed, new activities and models came into existence. With these new models came the need to update safety programs. This process is still very much a part of what AMA does today.
The AMA Safety Handbook outlines the current safety programs that cover all types of model aviation activities, from personal safety practices to club flying site layouts and event operations. The AMA Safety Program has been designed to mitigate risks and create a safe atmosphere for model aviation enthusiasts.
It is recommended that all members regularly review this document and help create a safe environment for all to enjoy this hobby.
