AMA Drone Report 05.25.17: Court Kills FAA Model Drone Registration, DJI Spark!

Also: AMA Reacts To Court, FAA Reaction, AUVSI Reaction, Kittyhawk Flight Deck APP

Score one for us little guys... As you may have heard, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. has ruled that the FAA violated the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 when it required the registration of model aircraft, including drones, that are flown strictly for recreational purposes, and has vacated the Registration Rule for those aircraft. In Section 336 of the law, Congress specified that the FAA "may not promulgate any rule or regulation regarding a model aircraft.” The Act defines “model aircraft” as “an unmanned aircraft that is — (1) capable of sustained flight in the atmosphere; (2) flown within visual line of sight of the person operating the aircraft; and (3) flown for hobby or recreational purposes.” Maryland attorney John Taylor challenged the registration requirement based on Section 336, saying that the rule was unlawful as a

The little drone’s aims are clear... keep it simple... using a number of new control concepts that range from an ingenious cadre of specialized hand gestures to mobile device control to quasi-conventional Flight controllers... and to incorporate scads of accessories and additional functionality. The revised DJI APP support is impressive. Triton Aerospace, a Chinese corporation with U.S. operations based in Washington State, has purchased the South Lakeland (FL) airport for $2 million with plans to establish a training and support center.
