Membership Benefits Spotlight: Stories

Stories. What’s your AMA story? Perhaps it’s sharing a tip or trick to help a newcomer ease into the hobby. Or maybe how someone mentored you when you were getting started. 

The story of how a scratch-built model airplane came together and was featured in Model Aviation or Park Pilot magazine, or a review of a new product that led to more enjoyment and success at the flying field. 

 You recall how someone you saw speak at an event or trade show inspired you to study aeronautical engineering and one day you hope to work for NASA. 

Your club recently held a charity event and beat the goal and last year’s amount raised. And in the process, your club introduced this great hobby to your neighbors and members of the community you call home. 

An event brought out heightened competitiveness in participants, but at the end of the day, you left as friends sharing the passion of all things model aviation. 

It wasn’t so long ago that stories like these lived exclusively in Model Aviation magazine and club newsletters. As the years passed, AMA has expanded our communication channels in many directions. Read, watch, listen, and share—there are multiple channels where you can find great stories and resources—from the print and digital magazines Model Aviation and Park Pilot to video programming such as AMA Air. Most recently, AMA launched The AMA Podcast. We offer several e-newsletters and, of course, you can find us on social media such as our I Fly AMA Facebook group. 

Inspiring, informing, and instructing—you can contribute your stories in multiple ways and learn the latest about your organization.

At the first of this year my house brunt to the ground an everything was gone .There was nothing to fly all I had was a foamy f-22 my culb is Texas wings in Newark TX. 76071 .I had tried for a while to teach myself how to fly a plane . I seen that the field was open so I stop .There was a few people. The 2 guy that helped was a Cajun man by the name Tony he was struck about training but in a good way .The other was a man name Greg. Well back to nothing to fly within a month I had more stuff to fly then I knew what to do with. They also gave a donation. I just want to thank Texas Wings .
