Apologies if I misunderstood your intentions. I too find many of these discussion devolving into strong pro-con AMA rhetoric which is where I get frustrated. I certainly believe that there are things that the AMA needs to improve/fix or they will no longer be around, but I also truly believe that they have done some good things here with regard to the regulatory environment we have been facing. Could they have done better? Maybe, I was not in the room so I don't know. But what I do see are situations where the FAA is cooperating with the hobby in ways that they would not be otherwise compelled to, and the influence for that is coming from somewhere. That was the point I was trying to make.
