The AMA History Project

This is our on-going endeavor to save the history of model aviation. We have over 1000 modeler biographies, 57 club histories, and 25 company histories completed and online, and our collection keeps growing.

The following links will take you to our current collection of biographies and histories, as well as other model aviation-related historical information. Please contribute your story today!

Want to add your story, your club's history, or other modeling history? Submit your story today. If you want a little help writing, feel free to use the helpful writing forms below:
