Source: AMA Government Relations Team, in a blog post concerning the FAA reauthorization act pending in Congress.

AUVSI is currently examining the 1205 page document which addresses a number of unmanned air vehicle operational and legal issues. In initial reactions, the Airline Pilot’s Association is voicing approval about additional restrictions on hobby drone activity, while AMA is asking that the bill be defeated due to what they see is the potential for extensive restrictions on the model aviation community.
