Comments Due on Proposed FAA UAS Rules that Could Impact Model Aviation
15 reviews and no replies. Well, I'll step up. This shouldn't be a worry. The AMA most definitely has befuddled the wording to make it absolutely unclear as to what the FAA is going to do. The problem is, even they do not know what they are going to do. Luckily, there are still some FAA employees that are modelers. Some of us started our aviation careers this way so there are still strong roots against the restriction of model aviation as we know it today. Until the heinous regulations have been imposed on this highly terrorist and unsafe activity, we love and enjoy, we should pursue it to the fullest extent. I have talked with the Denver FSDO (Flight Standards District Office), with an operations officer, who was also a model airplane enthusiast by the way and he said, "at this time, there are no restrictions in Class G, uncontrolled airspace the Centennial field is currently under, that we have to observe. We still have to have line of sight on the model and we MUST avoid other full scale aircraft. That's it. That means we can currently fly to the limits of our sight, avoiding other full size aircraft at our model field.
