Just some of the Support for Model Aviation and the Academy of Model Aeronotics in Washington

 

"...As an avid outdoorsman, I understand the importance of recreational activities that simultaneously allow people to enjoy the outdoors and participate in an educational activity like model aviation.

      -John Boozman (R), Senator from Arkansas

 

 


 "...Like you, I appreciate the cultural impact of model aviation as well as its contribution to our economy.  I also believe that too many government mandates, regulations and controls are slowly suppressing our economy and our personal liberty."


      -Ed Whitfield (R), Representative from Kentucky
 

 

 


"...Model aeronautics is a long tenured interest of many Americans and is a cherished recreational activity.  Not only is model aviation a safe operation but is it also educational.  Model aeronautics aides in teaching people of all ages the valuable skills of technology, physics, engineering, aeronautics and math.  Model aviation provides an opportunity for individuals and families to learn about aeronautics while enjoying the outdoors.  I believe that we need to foster American recreational activities, not over-regulate them."

       -Scott Garrett (R), Representative from New Jersey

 


  

  "...Constructing and flying motorized aircraft can help stir scientific curiosity in our youth."

        -Richard J. Durbin (D), Representative from Illinois

 

 


 

  “…model aviation is an educational hobby that enables adults and children to experience and enjoy the wonders of flight."


      - Rob Portman (R), Senator from Ohio
