Academy of Model Aeronautics Affiliation

CNY Drones is our area’s first drone focused group affiliated with the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) as Model Aviation Student Club #15080.  CNY Drones take pride in providing educational programs and curriculum in line with AMA guidelines.

CNY Drones encourages all drone owners to join the AMA individually, as important safety information and insurance coverage is included with membership.  We’re happy that our friends at SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s former RC Hobby Club are now affiliating with the AMA to form the SUNY AMA University Model Aviation Student Club!   We hope to team up for some great new programs!
