The 2013 AMA Expo was held this year, January 11-13, in Ontario, California. Over 100 vendors and manufacturers filled the Ontario Convention Center, showcasing their latest product offerings. The flying area was bustled with activity as sponsored pilots demonstrated products that could safely be enjoyed in the indoor venue.

This year's guest speaker list included Olympic Champion Bruce Jenner, Chris Anderson who left as editor of Wired magazine to lead a UAV company, Jerry Budd of NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, aviation historian and author Gary Fogel, and Top RC pilot and US F3A champion Andrew Jesky. All of our speakers are active AMA members!

The Black Sheep Squadron and Southern California Rocketry Association helped spearhead the Make and Take area. Rockets and rubber band-powered gliders were available for kids to construct. The young glider builders were eager to put their creations to the test in the Free Flight area. After a few test flights, the young aviators competed in duration contests for prizes.

AMA Executive Council members and AMA employees were also on hand to greet attendees and answer questions. The 2013 AMA Expo was another great success. Plans are already underway for next year’s event.
