The Archives is housed in the National Model Aviation Museum. It contains both records of the AMA and manuscript collections (collections donated by individuals, clubs, and/or companies), with items related to model aviation.
The Archives stores two-dimensional materials that document the history of model aviation. These materials include letters, posters, certificates, booklets, pamphlets, cards, photographic prints, slides and negatives, plans, video tapes, audio tapes, DVDs, 8mm and 16mm film, letter-, legal- and over-sized paper, photographic paper, and more!
The majority of the collections cover the history of the AMA, its committees, competitions, and internal functions. The manuscript collections hold personal correspondence, certificates, photographs, and other memorabilia. We have few records of individual clubs and companies.
Please note: The majority of the Archives' collection are post-1972.
