    Nope, I know the AMA lobbied for the CBO language, it just doesn't bother me like it does the rest of you. But it still took the Senate AND the House...

    There is no such law that states you must belong to the AMA to fly over 400 feet. The only actual FAR is Part 101.41, that becomes effective in...
