I don't understand why so many are registering even with the AMA saying not too. In reality though, what kind of power does the AMA have over the Federal Gov't? I doubt that the FAA is the only one behind all of this, and it must be pushed by higher up Gov't. I really hate to say this, but really what is to gain now?

To many weak minded liberal  people that accept any thing from there Government. AMA and a lot of people are trying to make the FAA follow the law that was passed in 2012. Why not wait and see if AMA can get this worked out if you do not register by 2-19-2016 you just can not fly it will still be cold and you were not going to be flying any way. Lets wait and maybe AMA will work it out if a large number of AMA members register then the FAA will have no reason to follow the law.

I think that Carl is correct in suggesting that we wait to register. AMA members need to make absolutely certain that they comment on these regs. as AMA has suggested. FAA may agree to allow AMA membership (a community based program) to suffice, but you can be certain that the AMA and FAA computers will need to be able to communicate effectively if it's going to work.  If a private contractor does the work for the FAA then the computers may be able to talk freely. Having been a federal employee, I can say that sometimes the federal offices are significantly behind the private sector when it comes to computer systems. The cost of keeping up with the private sector can be a little too high for available agency funding. I'd bet in the end, because the wheels of bureaucracy turn slowly, an agreement with AMA will take time, and we'll end up having to obtain a federal number. I think AMA may be able to prevail eventually, especially if they can show any kind of savings for the FAA if AMA handles things for its members. I hope that AMA plays that angle. AMA membership information would likely be more current than what might be included in the federal system.

I think it would be a win-win situation for the FAA and the AMA. We are already registered, just share that information with the FAA. It's pretty simple. Unless of course, the FAA needs our money. :lol: Let's see, 185,000 times $5.00 = $925,000.00.
Hmnn.....

Onward and Upward.
