Last Thursday, The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee approved legislation that establishes an independent, not-for-profit corporation outside of the federal government to modernize America’s air traffic control system and provide air traffic services.

The Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization, known as the AIRR Act, reauthorizes the FAA, provides a number of reforms to our aviation system, and upholds the FAA’s role as the Nation’s aviation safety regulator. Last week the FAA announced changes in the rules for the Washington DC Special Flight Rules Area that allows a softening of restrictions being applied to model aircraft flyers. Dave Mathewson, executive director of the Academy of Model Aeronautics said in part, “We are pleased that after weeks of working closely with the AMA and our local chartered clubs, the FAA today updated the conditions for flying unmanned aircraft in the Special Flight Rules Area surrounding the DC metropolitan area. The permanent Notice to Airmen published by the FAA allows our members to resume flight inside the DC SFRA.” An event for owners of Grumman TBM Avenger aircraft is being planned for mid-April at Illinois Valley Regional Airport. At least nine of the airplanes are currently expected to attend. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
