Please Take Your TRUST Exam Now.

AMA has been approved to administer The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST). AMA has worked closely with the FAA to ensure that TRUST meets the intent of Congress without placing an undue burden on our hobby community. The TRUST Exam is free to take, so be cautious of any site that has a fee associated with taking the exam. Additionally, some sites might offer to send you a laminated copy of your TRUST completion certificate for a fee. There is no requirement to purchase these cards. There is no set deadline to take TRUST, but the FAA recommends taking the test as soon as practical.

For any additional questions regarding TRUST, visit AMA’s TRUST FAQ.


I took the test and it was about 15 minutes. It's more like an on-line training session . When I printed my completion card I printed it at 90% one page at a time. I flipped the paper over and sent it back through for the second page so it was front to back then put it in one of those Scotch Self-Seal Laminating Pouches. At 90% it fits in my billfold in a normal credit card slot. The prining and sealing took another 15 minute so the whole process is quick.


Here is the "Mowing Schedule" for the next six weeks. We need some volunteers so go to the Member's Only Section and sign up. It's really easy just find a date and click anywhere on that line and the system will put your name in for that week. If you put it in the wrong week just click your name and the system will take it out. You can then go to the week you really wanted and click it. Slice of Pie.

Thought for Today

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and starting on the first one. "
