Many countries have a recognized aeromodelling body, charged with representing its members interests on a national level (for example, by working with local clubs and councils to secure flying sites, or negotiating how proposed legislation affects model fliers). Often they provide third party insurance to their members, in case a model should accidentally hit something (or worse, someone).
These national bodies are often directly or indirectly recognized by the FAI.
