Because of the requirements of HOTMAC's flying site owner, all membership levels except the Introductory Pilot Program must have membership in the AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics). Your AMA Membership has many benefits, including a monthly magazine and additional insurance. Check out the many benefits and AMA membership is available HERE.
Fly legally within FAA rules
All RC pilots at HOTMAC are legally required to obtain an FAA Recreational User Registration Number for their aircraft under "The Exception for Recreational Users". A small fee covers multiple years. One registration number is for multiple aircraft. Details on how to register, label your aircraft and fly legally and safely can be found HERE.
