Frequently Asked Questions

As we build our new Model Aviation Library, we understand there will be some questions, especially as we are in BETA mode.   Hopefully this page will answer most of your questions.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at or 765-287-1256x227.


Q:  Why did you change the archives?
A:  The old Model Aviation archives were build on a dated platform that did not allow us to expand and include the current issues.  In addition, many members had trouble navigating the old archives and we wanted a more intuitive site.


Q:  Why is it called the Library and not the archives?
A:  We are including not only back issues of Model Aviation, but the current issue as well.  Therefore we didn't feel archives were an appropriate title. Think of this website more as a digital edition.


Q:  What's the difference between ths Library, the tablet edition, and the online content on

A:  Great question.  You are currently visiting the Model Aviation Library.  This is an exact page-by-page replica of every issue since 1975.  The Tablet App allows readers who have an iPad or Android tablet to view an interactive version of the latest issue of Model Aviation. is a supplement to the print issue, where you'll find bonus content and online exclusive features.


Q:  How can I search by author?
A:  You can enter the author's name in any of the keyword search features.  A more details search feature will be available to members only.


Q:  How can I print an article?
A:  This is a feature we will allow for members only once the site goes behind the membership wall.  During this free trial mode, we removed the print feature.
