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
