AMA Drone Report 04.18.19: Flt Over People, Not Drone Fault, FAA ANPRM

Also: Gatwick Drone 'Chaos', Fenway Park Foolishness, Utah Legislature, Parrot ANAFI Thermal

AMA has responded to the FAA's NPRM on the Operation of sUAS Over People. Overall, the AMA believes the proposed rulemakings on flying over people and night flying are a step toward opening the airspace for more commercial unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) operators.

For model aircraft hobbyists, however, they do not anticipate these rules will have a significant impact on their existing guidelines for safe and responsible operation. "...For years, our National Model Aircraft Safety Code has been recognized by Congress, as well as state legislatures, as a safe and effective means of managing the model aircraft community. Our members know where, when and how to fly safely and they do not present a risk to the airspace," the AMA commented. On March 29, 2018, a pilot and passenger departed Thames Aerodrome in New Zealand for a scenic flight. After flying for approximately 40 minutes, the pilot flew the aircraft over the open mine to the north of the town of Waihi. While both occupants were viewing the open mine at approximately 1600 feet MSL, and 80 knots, the windscreen failed catastrophically. When interviewed, the pilot reported a possible collision with a drone. Examination of the aircraft and searches of the area of the mine have found no such evidence. AMA has offered comments in response to the FAA’s advanced notice of proposed rulemaking on the safe and secure operations of sUAS, including model aircraft. The organization's position is simple: model aircraft present no new risk or danger into the airspace, and therefore should not be subject to new regulations. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!
