THE PROBLEM AND THE SOLUTION

NPRM RULES PROPOSAL GOES TOO FAR

The new FAA NPRM rules proposal in its current form goes way too far in restricting RC flight.  We all agree we want a safe sky, and we want to participate in making that sky safe, but this proposal essentially eliminates RC hobby flight as we know it.   

DECADES OF SAFETY IGNORED BY THE FAA

Decades of safety and responsibility in custom and home built RC hobby aircraft should not fall deaf on ears.  The FAA has ignored the safety record and instead of fostering the continued safe use of the public airspace by hobby flight enthusiasts they have decided to BAN everything to make way for commercial UAS. 

A BETTER WAY THAT SAVES HOBBY FLIGHT

RC hobby flight can be done safely without removing amateur hobby aviators from the public airspace.  Property air rights must be considered because a ban on flying a custom or home built RC airplane or quadcopter on your own property is unrealistic and unenforceable.  

This goes WAY WAY WAY too far!

 

Help Save Our Hobby

Join us! Washington DC – Feb 29 @ FAA HQ

The FAA has provided a 60 day comment period ending March 2nd.  UFDA CREW along with the community at large has been working hard to spread the word about this new rule proposal and drive people to comment on the NPRM-  but we didn’t believe that would be enough. So we decided we cannot wait for the FAA to tell us we’re banned from the sky, we need to go to WASHINGTON DC and tell the FAA we want reasonable safe regulations that take into account the large communities of RC hobby flight enthusiasts, along with the industries, businesses, and jobs at risk.  We are gonna need your HELP TO SAVE OUR HOBBY! We will protest on February 29th in Hancock Park across the street from the main FAA Headquarters and tell the FAA to go back to the drawing board.
