Hey Central New York-  Get Involved!


We focus on indoor events and operate as a mentor group and community support hub vs. a traditional club.  

All of our activities are run as sharing & learning events under the AMA – Academy of Model Aeronautics (https://modelaircraft.org).  As the 1st Model Aviation Student Club in New York State, we’ve made it our goal to spread the word about this great opportunity for drone clubs, after school programs, classrooms & schools.  AMA Membership is required for key positions at our events.  FAA Drone Pilot Certification (Part 107) is not required although most of us are card-carrying Commercial Pilots.  U.S. Drone Soccer Instructor Certification is required to provide technical support &/or training to component groups.  We assist key volunteers with certifications when sponsor funding permits.  

Spend some time with us at an event & see where you fit in!  Check our calendar or give us a call as Meets & meetings with our sister group, SUNY AMA, are often not posted publicly.   Those who stick with us learn from each other & make valuable connections.   It is a commitment.  We work around schedules as much as possible.

Self-promotors & financially-motivated “volunteers” are discouraged & culled out.  We’re in this to connect students to drone education & employment opportunities.

      • We promote our sponsors!
      • We reserve the right to remove solicitors & those with conflicting interests from our ranks
      • It is not for everyone.  If it’s right for you, hang-out with us at an event!
