Model Aviation is the monthly full-color publication written, prepared and distributed by the Academy of Model Aeronautics beginning in 1936 and established as an independent publication in July 1975.
It is a standard benefit of club membership and covers all aspects of the hobby of model aircraft. Model Aviation is considered to be the voice of the AMA and features editorial content, product reviews, how-to articles and coverage of major national and international aeromodeling events.
The publication has recently spawned an e-zine for new and upcoming pilots, Model Aviation's Sport Aviator. This is a free service exclusive of membership and may be accessed online by anyone with an interest in entry-level aeromodeling.
Members of the AMA have access to a twenty-five year archive of back issues. The magazine itself is available by subscription to non-AMA members and over the counter at select hobby shops across the country.
