What is it?

Over 40,000 drones are sold each and every month, people love flying them however many people fear drones and work to pass laws banning drones.

If nothing is done, the probable almost certain future is that there will be less and less places to legally fly and the world will loose out on the many amazing things drones can do for the world.

So we created a day to celebrate drones and their uses and to educate the media, public and local governments about the many good things drones are used for. We have 150 simultaneous events happening all at the same time on Saturday May 7 2016.

Flying models is a safe activity. But sometimes accidents can happen involving people or property. Enjoy peace of mind flying by knowing the AMA has you covered. It would cost you $1,000 a year or more to buy this insurance on your own. And you’re covered whether you choose to fly at an AMA club field, park, backyard or wherever.

Mass Media Coverage

International Drone Day creates an enormous opportunity for everyone on one day to create a day of positive news stories around drones.

This allows both the public and lawmakers the chance to really see that Drones are good for what might be the first time.




AMA stands for you

AMA Stands Up For Your Interests and Right to Fly.

Our work with Congress helped establish the Special Rule for Model Aircraft, exempting recreational, unmanned aircraft from regulation. And the FAA now considers our National Model Aircraft Safety Code to be a legitimate means of operating recreational, unmanned aircraft in the national airspace.
