Aloha, FYI,

Dear Members,  


  On Thursday, December 26, the FAA released its proposed rule on remote identification (remote ID) in the Federal Register. AMA is still reviewing the 319-page notice of proposed rulemaking; however, an early read indicates that we were successful in efforts to shape the proposed rule including not requiring onboard equipage for our members at our flying sites. We will continue to advocate for our members and the hobby by addressing the concerns in the proposal.  We will share our full analysis  in the coming days.   

  When the FAA announced plans to remotely identify unmanned aircraft a few years ago, the Academy immediately began advocating on behalf of our members, including shaping decisions during the 2017 Remote ID Aviation Rulemaking Committee. AMA recommended a common-sense approach to remote ID that would be quick, cost-effective and easy for the recreational UAS community to comply.     

  Please keep in mind that this is a proposed rule, not a final rule. While AMA was successful in shaping elements of the proposed rule, we will continue to address unnecessary burdens for both manufacturers and the recreational community in the final rule and during implementation. AMA will soon ask our members to participate in the process by providing comments to the FAA.   

  The FAA will begin reviewing comments and feedback in March 2020. The comment review process could take weeks or months to complete before FAA publishes a final rule and begins the lengthy implementation process. We encourage members to look for future communications from AMA for the most current information regarding this proposed rule.   

  In the meantime, you can read Frequently Asked Questions on our blog. As always, please contact AMA Government Affairs at (765)287-1256 or amagov@modelaircraft with any questions. You can read the entire proposed rule and FAA's announcement here.   

  Thank you,  

  Academy of Model Aeronautics

Hope this helps!
Aloha and Drone On!
