If possible find a local club, there may be more than one- there's a reason for that.
After all this time I rejoined AMA and want to see my #'s on a wing- did it before without realizing that club belonged to a few certain few- things have changed ! ( they lost their field because of not being community member )
Go to a flying sight and ask questions- my guess is they will ask YOU first.
If not JOIN AMA and they will help YOU !
