NEW AMA DOCUMENTS Shed light on NPRM!!!!!!!

Post  Admin on Fri Feb 04, 2011 9:30 pm

"Although the exact language of the proposed regulation is not yet known, there are a
number of conclusions that can be drawn from the ARC recommendations. The following
are AMA’s areas of concern, the restrictions that are likely to be imposed and their effect on
the model aviation community:"

ALTITUDE: As proposed, the rule would impose a nationwide altitude ceiling of 400 feet.


SPEED: It is likely that the rule will attempt to limit model aircraft performance by
establishing a set speed limit such as 100 mph.

WEIGHT: As proposed, the sUAS rule will limit small unmanned aircraft to 55 pounds
or less.

TURBINE BAN: The blanket prohibition of gas turbine engines.

AIRPORT PROXIMITY: It is understood that the FAA is considering going outside the ARC’s
recommendation and extending the “area of concern” around the nation’s 19,760 airports
beyond the current 3-mile radius to 5 miles.

Wow! Exactly what I said in July and was called a moron and liar on every RC board in the USA.
Looks like come this summer I will (sadly) have to say I told you so. The modeling community (esp. the AMA) should have been working with the FAA on rules for everyone 5 years ago.

Since it appears the FAA isn't giving the AMA special CBO prviledges they are doing 5 years of back-pedaling.
Now it seems the AMA is being hoisted by their own petard. Wow! I predicted that last July too!
