Default Good news for model aviation

Has not made it into law yet, but at least a step in the right direction.

Perhaps we should petition Congress to get rid of the weight limit?

Yes, it's quite a relief to see things moving in the right direction.

Thanks for the update, Arch. Now I can sleep at night... really

Geez, I thought the weight limit referred to obese legislators... or is it just the national budget that's over the limit

Which plane is heavy? I thought every modern plane is as fit as its pilot.

Thanks for protecting our rights in this hobby!

Thanks for the update and its good to know that "things are moving in the right direction", but as usual the info is all about process not substance. Where is the language in the bill that pertains to model aricraft ?

It is in the actual bill. This was part of that push the AMA had with the EAA last year to get it included. There is more info on the AMA site.
