Important Information Before You Make Your Reservation

  • The Claude McCullough Education Facility is rented on a first-come, first-serve basis.

  • Reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance but no more than six months prior to your event. Please note that availability may be limited in the summer months due to scheduled on-site events.

  • If you are making a reservation on behalf of a Special Interest Group (SIG), your reservation for the National Aeromodeling Championships (NATS) may be made up to a year in advance. Use of the Claude McCullough Education Facility for pilot check-in, judging, and other club related activities is free. Please reference this page on the AMA's website to see if your group qualifies.

  • You may cancel your reservation up to one week in advance of the event. Upon cancellation, you will forfeit the $25/$20 reservation fee unless there are extenuating circumstances.
