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.
Donations will be used to cover the costs of event production, rental, equipment transportation, permits, and protest materials including, informational packets, picket signs, event tee-shirts, posters and more. All protest materials will be free for people to use at the event and take home at the end. We encourage as many people to physically come as possible because we need to show the FAA and the general public that this is important enough to us that we will show up @FAAHQ!
We’d like to invite industry leaders to join us in this effort to defend the airspace for hobby pilots, professional pilots, and educational institutions alike- both commercial and hobby interests, as these new rules affect us all. Several industry leaders have already spoken against these new regulations, which go against the advice of the FAA’s Drone Advisory Committee and create an undue burden to the recreational drone and hobby flight industry. Now is the time for all of for industry and hobbyists to unite in our efforts to save this activity we all cherish and hold dear.
