Default ALPA: Congress should mandate online training for UAV operators

There are some on here who like to blame the FAA for the FPV problems. See this: http://atwonline.com/regulation/alpa...-uav-operators

"The proposal, outlined by ALPA president Tim Canoll during a Feb. 1 briefing with journalists in Washington DC, calls for UAV owners to be required to gain a “key code” by passing an online training course. Small UAVs, like those being sold by retailers like Walmart, would not be able to be operated until the correct key code is plugged into the device via a mechanism that would have to be created by UAV manufacturers."

Right, take a course, pass a test and get a key to that $30 sUAV that you just bought at banggood.com.

Yeah, but he would first need to pass an online test to obtain a "key code" to insert into the space ship for it to start.

Bad ALPA,. bad, bad, bad. They are probably just hysterically overreacting over the remote possibility of a Lipo powered toy being ingested by an engine. So what is the big deal? It's a really big engine, so what harm could a little quad do? Tsk, tsk.
