AMA Drone Report 12.07.17: AMA Supports GoFly, ALPA v UAS, EU Drone Regs

Also: Drones Hunt Pythons, MI State Regs, Thanksgiving Drone Flying, Drone Collision Report

A little outside our normal coverage responsibilities, nonetheless, we’re intrigued by AMA’s newest agreement... AMA has partnered with Boeing to support GoFly, an incentive competition that encourages innovators to create a safe and easy-to-use personal flying device.

“AMA is excited to partner with GoFly in support of this creative initiative,” said Dave Mathewson, AMA executive director. “AMA has always supported advancements in aviation technology, and we look forward to witnessing the success of the GoFly program.” Following the release of an FAA directed study showing that UAS may damage aircraft more than bird strikes during collisions, Capt. Tim Canoll, president of the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l renewed the union's call for Congress to give the FAA the authority to regulate hobby drones. Mind you, the narrative adopts invokes is not altogether correct nor firmly verified and is obviously designed to appease the airline community... The drone regulatory attacks continue. The Transport Committee of the European Parliament has agreed to draft drone regulations that would make sweeping changes in how small unmanned aircraft are regulated on the continent. Under the agreement reached recently, drones that are classified as "dangerous" would have to be registered with the EU. A "dangerous" drone would be defined as one that could cause significant harm to people by impacting them, or one that presents a risk to privacy, security or the environment. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!
