AMA Announces 2019 Flying Site Grant Recipients

Has Been Providing Assistance For Site Improvements For 17 Years

The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), with the assistance of its foundation, has announced the 2019 Flying Site Development/Improvement Grant recipients. For 17 years, this program has provided funding for AMA Chartered Clubs to create and improve model aviation flying sites across the U.S.

This year, the grant has been awarded to 44 AMA clubs, totaling more than $32,000 for flying site improvements. Clubs receiving over $1,000 in grant awards include: the Derby Radio Control Club in Derby, KS; the East Coast Swamp Fliers in Northford, CT; the Florence Aeromodelers in Florence, AZ; the Harvey County Radio Control Club in Harvey County, KS; the Omahawks, RC Inc in Omaha, NE; the River City Radio Controllers in Louisville, KY; Robin’s Flying Field in Sylmar, CA; the Sun Valley Fliers in Phoenix, AZ; and the Western Carolina Radio Club in Spartanburg County, SC.
 
“AMA clubs across the country are making a difference in their communities through aeromodelling,” said Chad Budreau, Executive Director of AMA. “The Flying Site Grant program provides local clubs with more money to improve their operations. Importantly, it allows them to continue inspiring the young and young-at-heart to pursue a hobby that may lead to STEM learning and sometimes a new career path.”
 
Model aviation is a vital tool in fostering an interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields in kids and young adults. For many young people, aeromodelling leads to successful careers in aviation, aerospace science and engineering – jobs that are increasingly vital to the future.

AMA established the Flying Site Development/Improvement Grant program to invest in the continued improvement and growth of AMA chartered clubs. Grant funding is provided through an allocation of membership dues each year. This year, thanks to the support of AMA Foundation donors, enough funding was available to award grants to all qualified clubs.
