Default looking for rules on Flying near airports.

It has always been known when flying within 3 miles of an active airport, there are a few different rules to follow.

I looked in AMA's web site but I could not find any, although I did read in a few spots where it was mentioned, but never found a hard copy of any list of rules. Is there such a thing and I missed it?

if anyone does know the section , please let me know..

Thank you

What the AMA safety code says is that if flying within 3 miles of a controlled airport, you should contact the airport. The implication is that you work out an agreement with the air traffic controllers regarding your flight operations.
