Registration is open for the 43rd Air Race Classic (ARC), the annual all-women cross-country airplane race. More than 100 women pilots from around the world are expected to compete in this year's ARC, which begins Tuesday, June 18 in Jackson, Tennessee, and ends Friday, June 21 in Welland, Ontario. The oldest race of its kind in the United States, the ARC traces its roots to the 1929 Women's Air Derby, in which Amelia Earhart and 19 other daring female pilots raced from Santa Monica, California, to Cleveland, Ohio. That contest, aka the Powder Puff Derby, marked the beginning of women's airplane racing in the United States.

The new simplified rules reflect significant consultations with Canadians and the industry. The final regulations introduce two main categories of drone operation: basic and advanced. The categories are based on distance from bystanders and airspace rules. State Farm has reportedly been granted the first national waiver to any company in the U.S. by the FAA. The national waiver allows State Farm to conduct drone operat

The AMA government affairs team has been working with the FAA to address provisions relating to our hobby; however, our correspondence has been reduced due to the furlough. AMA has received a lot of questions regarding FAA registration requirements. On December 12, 2017, Congress reinstated FAA registration for all unmanned aircraft weighing over .55 lbs. For those that registered before then, the FAA extended their expiration date to December 12, 2020. Drones are exciting new technology that have the potential to enhance public safety and save lives, b
