FAA Proposed Rule for Drones/RC Aircraft

FAA Proposed Rule for Drones/RC Aircraft

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued the proposed rule for remote identification of drones, which by strict definition include RC model aircraft. We encourage our audience to read the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking now in the Federal Register and share their comments.

The following regulations are in the proposed rule and would impact the RC hobby.

> It would limit the number of approved flying sites

> All flying sites must have internet capability

> Requires registration of every aircraft

  1. to the FAA i fly fixed wing aircraft by line of sight at a club field with ama insurance why are you after me i am the AMA !!!

  2. Why does 99% of the hobby get lumpped into the 1% of trouble makers. Seems a small exception for rc planes up to 20 lbs would be reasonable. People writing these rules should talk to hobby shops and members of ama.

    1. Because you’re only as strong as the weakest link. Like it or not, that 1% is the weakest link.

  3. This is the most ridiculous rule for our hobbyists that self regulate and do not use out models for commercial operations. It will essentially destroy the hobby in short order.
