AMA Membership Programs:
There are two types of AMA membership packages. 1) Full Membership Program – This allows all AMA benefits and does not restrict the size or power options of the aircraft. 2) Park Pilot Program – It is more economical, but the aircraft must not exceed 2 pounds, 60 mph, and may not be powered with an internal combustion engine. The Park Pilot Program also does not offer the same insurance coverage as the full membership program. Below describes the full membership program in detail:
