No way! Our AMA President would propose a regulation banning it due to possible liability from accidents, noise complaints, pollution, enviromental impacts, fright to small fuzzy animals, posible radio interference to park fliers and a host of other concerns that he and the boys of the EC can come up with. - Of course if you let him fly the last leg it would be OK until after it's complete, THEN he would find a way to ban it.[:@] And we wonder where the 'experimenting' and growth went in AMA?

In October 1975, Bob and Doris Rich flew a Carl Goldberg Senior Falcon across the USA, from somewhere in North Carolina to California.

Not arrested. This was an AMA event as best I can tell. The article mentions at least one District VP entered in the Rally. It is amazing how attitudes have changed since then, mine included. I don't think it could be done today. I could be wrong.
