The Model Aeronautical Association of Queensland (MAAQ) is the body delegated by the Model Aeronautical Association of Australia (MAAA) to be responsible for all aspects of model flying in Queensland.

The Australian Miniature Pylon Racing Association (AMPRA) is a special interest group recognised by the Model Aeronautical Association of Australia (MAAA), which is the governing body for aeromodelling in Australia. MAAA is affiliated to the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) through the Australian Sports Aviation Confederation.

AMPRA was formed in 1975 and its objectives are to promote pylon racing in Australia. The focus of the organisation is for racing on a three-pylon course. The organisation is headed by a Chairman and there are members representing each State.

AMPRA provides a focal point for establishing rules for the classes of racing that are flown in Australia, and is accomplished via a Technical Subcommittee to the MAAA. AMPRA also runs an Championship event, which is held each year at a relatively central location. The AMPRA Championship is also used as part of the Australian Team Selection for the F3D class. This team represents Australia at the F3D World Championship event which is held every two years.

Pylon racing is also conducted at the State level in Australia, and information regarding these organisations and their events can be accessed via the links page on this website.
