The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has formulated strict new rules for flying model airplanes, particularly RC models.  You need to make known your opinions on this if you want to be able to fly models without subjecting yourself to arrest and prosecution for things we have been doing for 50 years or more without government intervention.
 
The AMA (Acadamey of Model Aeronautics) is the voice of model aviation in the USA and as an individual the FAA won’t listen to you.  But when you speak through the AMA you have the cumulative effect of about 170,000 voices, many of whom are voters.  Politicians guide the FAA and politicians take notice when a lot of voters speak up
 
Contact the AMA at --  www.modelaircraft.org -- for detailed information on how to add your voice to all of the other modelers who could be affected by this.
 
Keep 'em Flying,
Roland Friestad, Editor

October 2014 Cover

October 2014 Cover

 
Here's the cover of our October issue, a reproduction of the cover of the February 1937 issue of Flying Aces.  This magazine was later merged into what became Flying Models.  And now Flying Models has stopped publication.  I guess that means that RCMW-FSP is the only surviving general coverage model airplane magazine for model builders and flyers.  See the link on the left of this page to request a free sample copy.
