Academy of Model Aeronautics


CNY Drones is New York State’s 1st Academy of Model Aeronautics Model Aviation Student Club!  We take pride in providing educational programs & curriculum in line with AMA guidelines & strive to help grow other MASC clubs!

Our club helps establish a safe flying community & inspires both students & adults to learn more about drone technology.

We’re happy to have assisted our friends at SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s former RC Hobby Club to form the very first AMA University Model Aviation Student Club in New York State,  SUNY AMA MASC #15104!  Let us help you get connected in the drone community!


CNY Drones encourages all drone owners to join the AMA individually, as important safety information & insurance coverage is included with membership.
