The SUNY Polytechnic Institute Academy of Model Aeronautics University Model Aviation Student Club #15104 was officially formed in 2017 as the first AMA UMASC in New York State.  Formerly known as the RC Hobby Club, the group meets twice a week on the SUNY Utica Campus.   The group works on community outreach projects with sister organization, CNY Drones, AMA Model Aviation Student Club #15080 & promotes drone safety both on & off-campus.  The University Model Aviation Student Club was the first club to receive that designation in New York State.  We post this page as a courtesy.    AMA National Model Aircraft Safety Code
