    Not sure how you came to that conclusion? What is moot, AC 91-57 as a whole or some specific parts? 336 certainly validates and expands notify the airport operator part. Except for the change from...

    Did not say it was, however it was mentioned as background in the FAA's inperpretation of section 336 and has been referenced by the FAA for over 30 years in all matters pertaining to model aircraft....

    Eddie,
    I believe that is a reference to FAA AC 91-57 dated June 9, 1981 which states in part;

    c. Do not fly model aircraft higher than 400 feet above the surface. When flying aircraft within 3...

    I’m no longer sure exactly what you are trying to say but it appears you are cheery picking definitions to fit your flawed logic. The “radio” definition is not what congress intended;

    It's a simple statement;

    (2) flown within visual line of sight of the person operating the aircraft

    Rich,
    Your logic is flawed. What you refer to in your comments to the FAA as “Line of Sight by the Remote Control community” is actually referred to as LOS propagation and is true when referring to...

    This is exactly the kind of thing the FAA is concerned about.

    John,
    Just google 1 mile FPV and you'll find all kinds of examples. See link below at the 1 hour mark, he's at 10,000 feet, at 2 hours he's at 22,000 feet. Plane is a Winrider Queen bee (wing).

    Okay, have it your way, I did not read anything in that article that stated or implied that the FAA is involved with the media in hyping up drone mishaps’. In my experience the FAA seldom contacts...

    Just so I understand, you are now stating that you do not believe "FAA intentionaly hyping up Drone News" because those are your words that I read.

    Nothing is ever as “simple” as it seems. What is...

    I wonder if you did? The title of your post states the FAA is intentionally doing something and your first post states the article provides "proof". The article itself was aimed at sensationalized...

    I agree with sooner but what other term applies? The AMA's own safety code uses the term pilot more than a dozen times and makes it pretty evident that we are responsible for our actions when we fly....

    That document may not be "binding" but NTSB reports that state the individuals controlling UAVs are the Pilot-in-command certainly sets the precedence. It seems simple to me. If it flies and you are...

    Just so you are aware the pilots of UAS are known as PICs.

    The PIC is the person legally in charge of the aircraft and its flight safety and operation, and would normally be the primary person liable for an infraction of any flight rule. What term would you...

    Brad,
    Add the use of a “buddy” box and require AMA FPV spotter be the Pilot In Command (PIC) on the primary transmitter with positive control at all times and we would be in compliance. The key...

    Thomas,
    I read the AMA’s Objections letter and my first thought was did the AMA read the same FAA "interpretation" that I did? In the case of airport notifications the FAA intent for the past 33...

    Thank you Hoss,
    That signature line was not meant to scare but as a writer by profession I've found it to be a fact of life as a writer. Even keeping things very simple does not ensure complete...

    Gentlemen/Hoss,
    I started this thread over two years ago to help other club secretaries with a mutual problem of airport notifications. The only thing that has really changed is the distance from...
