Honor A Loved One

-A A +A

Pilots helping each other.

If you are looking to honor a loved one with a contribution in their honor or memory, we have several ways in which you can do so. No matter the way you choose to recognize your loved one, the donation will be noted in Model Aviation Magazine.


Purchase a Walk of Fame Brick

Established in 2001, the AMA Walk of Fame at the International Aeromodeling Center is designed in the shape of a large propeller and signifies the history of the hobby with honored names from all sectors of model aeronautics. Purchasing a brick along the Walk of Fame permanently includes the name of your loved one along this scenic walk. It's a permanent testimony to your loved one's continuing support of the hobby. Walk of Fame bricks are available in 3 different price options.

Purchase a brick HERE.


Create a Named Endowment

If you are looking to make a large donation or are interested in doing your own fundraising, creating a named endowment is a great way to make sure that your gift will last for many years.
