AMA Drone Report 09.20.18: Section 336 Update, LAANC Course, Drones In Florence

Also: FAA Reauthorization Stalled, Golf Course Drone Delivery, eBee X Fixed-Wing, Drone Locates Missing Woman

AMA president Rich Hanson has sent letters to the House and Senate, requesting they consider a risk-based approach to regulating recreational UAS. This would ensure the safe integration of UAS into the nation’s airspace while continuing to allow responsible model aircraft operators to fly safely. It is still uncertain if Congress will pass an FAA Authorization bill by the September 30 deadline, but legislators have begun work to resolve some of the issues surrounding the Special Rule for Model Aircraft (Section 336), which may include remote ID requirements on some aircraft. A congressional update on Section 336 was just released via a video from Interim Executive Director, Chad Budreau. Drone pilots can take a new free King Schools course titled Using LAANC to Fly Drones in Controll

AMA Drone Report 09.13.18: Drone Shootings, Hurricane Warning, Drone Recurrency

Also: FAI International Drones Conference, Nags Head Drone Ordinance, Yuneec International, Small Drone Turbine

One of the dirty little secrets about sport and commercial drone operations is that negative media hysteria, often drummed up by so-called journalists who can barely spell “UAV,” is creating hazards for drones, their operators and the public by inciting ‘Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt.’ Worse, there is great potential for even greater harm when expended ammo comes down... where it may hit a human being. Recently, a DJI Inspire 2 was shot down. AMA has posted an alert concerning this week’s issues with Hurricane Florence. Florence is due to make landfall on the coasts of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia Friday.
