Since 1936, safety has been a key pillar of AMA. This includes the safety of our members, staff, and community. AMA continues to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local health officials, and from the state under Back on Track Indiana regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes information concerning the more contagious Delta variant.
As vaccines for COVID-19 continue to roll out in 2021, we look forward to resuming more model flying activities across the country this year. Members can fly at the International Aeromodeling Center (IAC) while complying with CDC and local guidelines. The National Model Aviation Museum reopened in June.
Many events were scheduled at the IAC this summer including the AMA Nats and the National Fun Fly. We recommend that members check the Event Finder feature on the AMA website at www.modelaicraft.org, or check the Sanctioned Event Calendar in Model Aviation for updates.
As always, fly with safety in mind for your aircraft, yourself, and those around you!
