Point being public spaces for full scale do not equal the same ideal for flying RC models. Not even rural public parks, because of the obvious safety concerns for the general public. Rural private...

Well the FAA certainly can't have it both ways. Considering that most public airports are generally near larger population urban areas, it would be counter productive for them to assume that the...

Thank goodness the EAA has recently come on board to help educate the FAA on the requirements and intention of traditional fixed wing model aircraft hobbyists.

Even if the NPRM were changed to include non AMA members access to FRIA sites , that still does not stop the private property owner from limiting ground operations to local club (dues paying...

Well she definitely has a leg up on the others on that panel. ;) Otherwise not very well spoken and appears to not be informed or even interested in hobby, in general.

I can see where the FAA may require a CBO to offer non CBO members an insurance only option, while still allowing the local club to charge membership. The difference being a CBO has an obligation to...

I'm gonna take a wild guess that this is where his "make some minor changes to the equipment rules / producer rules" comes into play. In other words one change negates the other. Simplifies...

Given the complexity of the situation at hand, one has to assume the FAA dangled the carrot well knowing the AMA and it's associate clubs could never comply. Unfortunately a very sad situation for...

I'm sure the AMA has some numbers, such as how many AMA members are park flyers vs full privilege membership. That percentage could give them a rough estimate of how many traditional flyers may come...

I suspect most of those 800,000 currently non AMA members are not going to join a CBO simply so they can fly around in circles without remote ID. The statistics suggest the largest segment of the...

Except as being proposed now, the fields will have to meet the FAA's parameters. And from then on out be slated for expiration.

When I google "Chartered Club", the first definition I get says:chartered clubnounNZ a private club licensed to serve alcohol to members

So I guess the AMA uses that term very loosely. ;)

Most likely the Greene County Parks & Trails is in error. The provided link is not an AMA document, and I'd be very surprised if you could find one.

I'm pretty sure the flying site needs to be submitted to FAA by a CBO?

You forgot to mention that the only thing AMA is concerned about is that only AMA members be allowed to fly at those locations. I've often wondered if that's something their insurance provider...

We would love to have that kind of apparently thin sideways growing grass. What we're stuck with is a Fescue breed and it's thick and bushy like a paint brush, even when mowed to one inch. And the...

The biggest obstacle our club faces is keeping the grass short enough for the very popular electric park fliers. Even cutting the grass every 3 days there's no way the typical 2" wheels can push...

If you currently fly on your own or another private land, one possibility is that the AMA may be able to set you and a few family or friends up as a new chartered club. Provided that charter gets...

More likely that pre-existing members will trickle to an already chartered clubs field, if and when it gets recognized as an FRIA. A few clubs could see a temporary boom in membership.

Good luck with getting the AMA to submit your private property for FRIA status without first obtaining an AMA club charter. Which you could do using a few family members as club officers.

I can agree with that. Leave the insurance only option at $75 and raise the full membership benefits to something more substantial. After all, a few members really appreciate getting the magazine and...
