AMA Comments On Singer Decision

Dr. Michael Singer’s Victory in A Federal Court Has Serious Legal Potential

Rich Hanson, President of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), has issued the following statement on Dr. Michael Singer’s victory in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts regarding a local law in Newton, Massachusetts that regulated unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), in violation of federal preemption:

“AMA is pleased that the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts has ruled in favor of Dr. Michael Singer in his lawsuit against the City of Newton, Massachusetts concerning the regulation of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).

The Court’s ruling affirms the role of the federal government in overseeing our nation’s airspace. We congratulate Dr. Singer on his victory.

“Any state or local regulations of UAS operations or airspace should wait until the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Drone Advisory Committee (DAC) has reached consensus recommendations on the proper role of state and local governments in these types of issues.

AMA is currently working with this committee, which includes the FAA, state and local governing bodies, and other industry stakeholders, on recommendations for safely incorporating UAS into our nation’s airspace.

“State and local governments across the country can rely on existing technology-neutral statues and tort laws within their jurisdiction to protect people and property on the ground. Consultation with the FAA is encouraged, and as always, AMA is also happy to offer guidance.”

The ordinance, in violation of federal preemption, required all UAS to be registered, created regulations affecting UAS operations below 400 feet above ground level, and prohibited flight beyond the visual line of sight of the operator.
