    New NPS position on Unmanned Aircraft?

    so, didnt AMA just say that they had worked it out with NPS to fly model aircraft in the NPS?


    this article seems to say otherwise.

    Thoughts?

    Hadn't heard that before. Can you provide any info along those lines?
    It is very important to understand that Jesus not only died for our sins but died because of our sins...even harder to understand now, exactly what were those sins???

    I think AMA's response to this issue has been sidelined by the more pressing asperation to gain a foothold in the commercial UAS market.

    You have completely misunderstood the article. Tony says two important things, and I quote:

    First, "The NPS has banned flying activity, with the exception of pre-existing permits from AMA model clubs that have a model flying site on park land.
    These operations will be allowed to continue to operate as long as they do so safely and in support of the park’s activities."


    second, "The only change is that now all permits will be issued by the National Parks Service Headquarters, and no longer by the local park management. Renewals will also be conducted in a similar manner. It will be up to the local park management to determine if the permit request is reasonable and in concert with “the purposes for which the park was established.”"

    Which means that yes, if you have permission, you can fly in the park. Also, although difficult, it is possible to get a new permit to fly in the park.

    Since you insist, I found a thread called "The AMA,Quad Copters,Flying Fields, The all-mighty Buck". You are right, I was ROTFLMAO. I think he has his tinfoil cap on too tight.

    Seems an AMA relevant topic. Maybe it should be moved over here for everyone to enjoy.
