FAI Team Information

AMA selects and fields approximately 25 teams to compete in different World Championships. This is a great honor for our members. These teams represent the United States of America as well as the Academy of Model Aeronautics. Team managers are responsible for raising funds to offset these expenses. Donations are a great way to support the teams. These gifts are tax-deductible. Listed are the various FAI teams sponsored by AMA. Please show your support by making a donation today!
