GOOD NEWS FROM THE FAA
AMA was officially recognized as a Community-Based Organization on November 15, 2022. This recognition allows AMA to begin requesting FAA Recognized Identification Areas (FRIA) for our charter club flying sites. FRIA sites will allow AMA club members to fly within the designated area without the need to broadcast remote ID information. Our application process has begun and we awaiting approval of our site as a FRIA.
The Silver Creek Aeromodelers is chartered by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) as Club No. 5516. The club promotes the sport of radio controlled aircraft modeling, maintains a dedicated radio controlled flying field, provides instruction in radio controlled aircraft piloting and actively contributes to the community through support of charitable organizations.
Our flying field (just outside of Snowflake, Arizona) is located at 1962 Mountain Highlands Blvd, Snowflake, Arizona. Use of the field is restricted to members of the club and their guest but visitors are always welcome.
Membership requires the member to obtain or have a current AMA card (available on-line at www.modelaircraft.org) and to pass a check flight with a club officer or instructor before solo flying at the field.
Please visit us at the meetings or at the field to learn more about the club.
Large or small, you can find an aircraft to fit your style.
Flying radio controlled aircraft is fun. It doesn't matter what you fly - fixed wing, heli, multi-rotor, gliders, whatever. All types of aircraft and flying are allowed at our field.
The sport of radio controlled flying can be challenging, but in a good way. It will help you learn about aerodynamics, engineering concepts and the basic principles of flight. Radio controlled aircraft will add practical hands on experience for students interested in STEM as an aid to a career in aviation.
