Template Comment on UAS Remote ID | AMA Government Relations Blog

ACADEMY OF MODEL AERONAUTICS
________________________________________
The largest model aviation association in the world!

Dear Members,

On December 26, 2019, the FAA released a proposed rule for remote identification (Remote ID) of UAS. There are several areas of concern with the proposed rule that AMA will push back against, and we need your help advocating for change.

Although the proposal does include AMA's request to exempt fixed flying sites, the rule should also provide community-based organizations (CBOs), such as AMA, more flexibility to establish and maintain fixed flying sites that satisfy Remote ID compliance.

Second, the rule should create a pathway for Remote ID compliance at AMA events and competitions, which might not take place at fixed flying sites.

Third, the rule should better accommodate operations not at flying sites to include situations where there is no internet connectivity, because many safe places to fly are in rural areas with little or no service.

Finally, the rule should not require modelers to register every aircraft individually.

The FAA is accepting comments on the Remote ID proposal until March 2, 2020. We have requested an extension to the comment period to give everyone more time to weigh in. To help us achieve the best possible outcome on the final rule, it is critically important that all who support the hobby submit a comment.

Please submit a formal comment to the FAA as soon as possible.

To submit a comment, go to the Remote ID proposal page on the federal website here.

FAA to Impose Restrictions on the Hobby

AMA needs your assistance in an urgent matter.

The FAA unexpectedly informed us that, contrary to earlier commitments to AMA, the agency plans to limit all recreational model aircraft operations to 400 feet in controlled airspace and there will be no exceptions.

We urge you to send a letter to your elected representatives in Congress and ask them to contact the FAA concerning this critical issue.

Please visit http://www.modelaircraft.org/higher-flight to contact your representative.

Fight for Higher Flight! | Academy of Model Aeronautics

Dear member –

We need your assistance in an urgent matter. Late last week, the FAA unexpectedly informed us that, contrary to earlier commitments to AMA, the agency is planning to limit all recreational model aircraft operations to 400 feet in controlled airspace – with no exceptions. Additionally, the FAA is proposing restrictions in uncontrolled airspace to altitudes that could present safety issues as well as limit some model aircraft operations altogether. We were stunned by this proposal and are pushing back, but we need your help.

We urge you to send a letter to your elected representatives in Congress and ask them to contact the FAA on this critical issue. Please visit www.modelaircraft.org/higher-flight to contact your representative.

Because of the negative impact on so many AMA members and clubs, we are going to fight this proposal with every resource at our disposal. You, our members, are our best resource.

To have the maximum impact on this proposed policy as possible, please share this message with your friends, family and fellow club members who love our hobby. To learn more about this policy, please click here. Also monitor your emails for new information as we work to fight this restrictive policy. As always, we are committed to doing everything possible to protect the model aviation hobby. If you have questions, please contact us at (765)287-1256 or [email protected].

Sincerely,

The AMA Government Affairs Team

If “SOSO” in the newsletters is “same old same old”, then what is “SSDD”?
Going to see how the weather pans out. Love to make a day trip to visit from NJ.

Hi folks,

Finished building your aircraft yet? Want to know where you could fly it now, besides your local club? ... ;)

This is a courtesy message to let you know that most, if not all of the world's flying locations and R/C clubs have been included in a new R/C app called "aeromura", which brings real-time weather and forecasts, into a bird's eye-view for all locations within your vicinity, not just your local flying club.

Developed over the past two years, by R/C pilots for R/C pilots, the aeromura app has now been launched for the first time in the app stores.

Flying locations and the data is maintained and controlled by the pilot community which uses the app, (not us), and can be added and modified by any pilot, for the benefit of the whole pilot community.

Essential to every pilot, you might like to advertise and give this information to your members for their benefit.

aeromura is freely downloadable from both the Apple and Google app stores.

Take a look at the preview video below to see how your local flying location may be appearing - we hope you will be suitably impressed:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ucm_QDLtYcs

Android pilots get it for free on the Google Playstore here : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.brainworx.aeromura

Apple iPhone pilots get it for free on the Apple Playstore here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/id1526771501

As an introductory promotion, we are giving away 5 X FREE 1 year ANNUAL subscriptions a day, covering the next year, for the premium version, to the first 5 pilots who PM me with the email address they used to sign up with - take advantage NOW, before this limited offer expires! ;)

*** IMPORTANT NOTE *** If your flying location has security problems due to burglary, or for any other reason, and you would
prefer it NOT to be visible on the app to the general public, please let me know so that
your flying location can be marked as PRIVATE and NOT VISIBLE to the general public - no questions asked ***
There was no mention, in the last newsletter, of Andy Kane Day. What's the story on this event?
Is there going to be anyone at the field Wednesday night 5-7? We sent in our membership forms and payment and are interested in coming out.
Has anyone ever had a birthday party at the model airpark?
Will the May 16th club meeting be held as scheduled? Will the June events be held as scheduled?
