The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) in cooperation with the Westchester Radio Aero Modelers (WRAM) announced it will host the annual Easy Coast hobby trade show. The next show will be held Feb. 24-26, 2017, at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, N.J.

This new show, AMA Expo East, will be fashioned from the annual AMA Expo West, held in Ontario, Calif. With this new show, the AMA and the WRAM Club will not be holding the "WRAM Show," one of the longest-running model aviation shows that ran for 48 years. AMA Executive Director Dave Mathewson said, “The Westchester Aero Radio Modelers’ Annual WRAM Show has been a staple in the modeling world for nearly 50 years. AMA is pleased to be able to carry on the WRAM tradition that benefits model aviation enthusiasts from throughout the Northeast.

AMA Expo East will feature guest speakers such as Robert “Hoot” Gibson, AMA Ambassador and NASA space shuttle pilot and commander, and David and Sarah Oneal, hosts of the podcast, That Drone Show. The latest products in R/C model aviation will also be on display.

Ready Made RC is sponsoring both the AMA Expo East and West shows.
