Getting Started With The AMA Website

The Academy of Model Aeronautics has upgraded the website to provide a better experience for our members.  One result of this change is a streamlined login system, making it easier to change your password, and contact information.  Gaining full access is a two step process.  Step one is creating your username on the website as detailed below.  This username is required to purchase items from the webstore.  Step two is linking the newly created web account to your AMA membership, which gives you full access to the Members Only section of the website.  Please follow the steps below to set up your username.

Initial login: 

1. Click the Signin button located at the top right corner of all web pages.

2. If you did not have a username for the website, click the link at the bottom of the page that says: Register a new web account now to create a new username.

a. Fill out the following fields, and click the register button:
(You may use your AMA number as your User Name.)
New Account Signup

b. Now click on your name up in the top right corner. Once you get to the Account Settings page click the "Link Membership" option.  If the link membership option is not available it is because the web account is already linked.  On the link membership page you should fill out the following screen and click "Link Membership".  The most common failure for linking membership is that the name is not entered exactly as it appears on the ama card.

c. You will now have full access to the Members Only section of the website.


The first step is to log into the website by clicking the Sign In button, at the top right corner of the website. Fill in your username and password and click the login button. If you wish to remain logged in after you close the web browser you may click the box next to: Remember me so that I do not have to re-enter my password. Once you log in, the site will display: Welcome <name> Sign Out at the top right of the website.


Click your name at the top right of the website, which will take you to your profile. 

Here you may change your name, change your password, chage your address, or link your membership to your web account so that you may access the members only section of the website.
