JMA was established in 1953. The predecessor of JMA was Tokyo International Modeling
Aircraft Club (TIMAC), which was founded in 1946 and reorganaized by JMA in 1950. Therefore
model air-plane activity was revived one year after the end of World War Ⅱ,that is six years
earlier than being released from the suspension of Japanese aviation by GHQ in 1952.

Our primary activity is to govern aero-model events, determinig category of Aeromodeling
