rather than speculating on if
the FAA will
break the law,
hows about you tell us your call
if the FAA just did break the law
, with a non-optional 'inspection' of a model field?
The point that it was non-optional, and there was a Pass-Fail evaluation,
sounds just like a rule being used on modeling.
How could it be mandatory if there was no rule mandating it?
And you cant have consequences of failing a mandatory inspection without a rule establishing that.
you say you dont believe they WILL go against the law,
but its a question of whether they JUST DID
... and what are we(ama) going to do about it?
a) Defend ourselves from the unlawful act, or
b) Roll over
