AMA Safety Code and Safety Handbook

The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) has released a new AMA Safety Code and Safety Handbook. The Safety Code still institutes the same safety principles that have kept our hobby safe for decades. However, it is now much shorter and more succinct than the old Safety Code, and it’s accompanied by a Safety Handbook that contains detailed information about the safety guidelines for each specific aeromodeling discipline.
