Hey, that is great news that the club doesn't need to police the FAA registration!

Carl, thanks for posting that link to the latest AMA video. It was very informative and enlightening. It appeares the AMA has not given up on the fight, yet. This is a good thing.:thumbs:

I understand the opinion of AMA on our responsibility to enforce the law, but wonder if it is the right thing for MMAA. Here's why:

We are a corporation not a club; we own our property, therefore our liabilities may be different than those of most "clubs".

Registration is a legal requirement directly associated with the activities on the property we own. We should not, and hopefully do not, permit members or guests to break the law on the property.

If a member or guest is registered, the FAA number should be on their aircraft. We will not have to ask them to produce the printed copy of their FAA  registration. Compliance should be evident.

In my opinion, without the advice of legal council, I believe we'd be safest if registration is a requirement.

I haven't been following it much lately, and maybe I'm not the only one confused here. The AMA has been bring up the height limitation, and saying ist only a guideline. So what part of their regulations are actually laws, and guidelines?

When you register with FAA it clearly states that the 400' limit is a guideline. That may not be the specific word they use, but it is the gist of it.

Anthony, where the Centennial/Olathe model field is at. Legally, we a are good to 10,000 feet above sea level before we run into regulations. You will easily lose sight of your helicopters by then. Airspace classes, anyone? :P
