Not sure , but saw this on a FB group
" Today I bumped into an old flying buddy at the field. He has a racing plane he'll sell me. Another guy is giving me another plane... When I came home to unload my birds back into my storage, I saw a quadcopter cruising over the houses. I got checked by the FAA Nazi SS Officer at the flying field today. Wanted to see my registration. So, I showed him my papers.. 2 people were ticketed for flying too high. Wonder how much that will cost?"

hum.... well interesting.

I fly out in the middle of no where, not a official club. don't even need AMA to fly. I am sure no one will be coming to check on me, I did register and I have my number on my aircraft, on the inside of most. as it said you can put them inside. there not huge numbers, no way to see them while the aircraft is in the air.

On my helicopters they will be on the inside of the canopy's. or maybe on the tail boom as my dad suggested.

its still BS and i find whole thing stupid.

Section 2124 from the Senate version of the re-authorization bill, if this passes the entire hobby is doomed.

(forgive the odd numbers here and there I copy pasted from a PDF)

Quote:
20 SEC. 2124. SAFETY STANDARDS.

21 (a) IN GENERAL.—Chapter 448, as amended by sec-21 tion 2122 of this Act, is further amended by inserting 22 after section 44802 the following:


‘‘SEC. 44803. AIRCRAFT SAFETY STANDARDS. 1 ‘‘(a) CONSENSUS AIRCRAFT SAFETY STANDARDS.— 2 Not later than 60 days after the date of enactment of the 3 Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization Act of 4 2016, the Director of the National Institute of Standards 5 and Technology and the Administrator of the Federal 6 Aviation Administration, in consultation with government 7 and industry stakeholders and appropriate standards-set-8 ting organizations, shall initiate a collaborative process to 9 develop risk-based, consensus industry airworthiness 10 standards related to the safe integration of small un-11 manned aircraft systems into the national airspace sys-12 tem. 13 ‘‘(b) CONSIDERATIONS.—In developing the consensus 14 aircraft safety standards, the Director and Administrator 15 shall consider the following: 16 ‘‘(1) Technologies or standards related to geo-17 graphic limitations, altitude limitations, and sense 18 and avoid capabilities. 19 ‘‘(2) Using performance-based standards. 20 ‘‘(3) Predetermined action to maintain safety in 21 the event that a communications link between a 22 small unmanned aircraft and its operator is lost or 23 compromised.

Default Doomed?

This article makes me think that Section 2142 will free hobbyists from over reaching local ordinances. I ready to start making money with my drone and I think this is a step closer to removing the 333 exemption requirement.

I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more attention. It's official! FAA Registration is NOT required for recreational use! Directly from the FAA itself: https://www.faa.gov/uas/getting_started/fly_for_fun/

And here is a thorough explanation: http://fsims.faa.gov/wdocs/notices/n8900_313.htm

Also it seems there is lots of debate as to whether membership in the AMA is required. IT IS NOT! For 2 reasons:

1. The AMA is not the only nationwide organization.
2. The FAA has not clarified the meaning of what "within the programming" actually means.

Default Recreational Flyer Registration Extended to Dec. 12, 2020

Received this email today from FAA:


Recreational Flyer Registration Extended to Dec. 12, 2020

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has important registration information for drone recreational flyers who registered in the FAADroneZone before December 12, 2017. Your registration has been automatically extended until December 12, 2020.
Why Was My Registration Extended?
The National Defense Authorization Act for 2018 restored the FAA’s registration rule with respect to model aircraft and recreational flying. If you registered prior to December 12, 2017, and did not request to have your registration information deleted, the FAA extended the expiration date until December 12, 2020, which is three years from the rule restoration date. If you requested a refund of registration fees, you would have had to re-register again after December 12, 2017. Therefore, your expiration date would now also be December 12, 2020, or later. At this time you can retain your registration number.
What Should I Do Now?
  • You do not need to do anything to extend your registration expiration date, this was done automatically.
  • To print an updated registration card: Login to the FAADroneZone, select the Recreational Flyer Dashboard, and select Print.
When Will I Need to Renew My Registration?
  • The FAA will send out a registration renewal email notification 180 days prior to your registration expiration date.
  • When your registration renewal is available, your FAADroneZone dashboard will include an option to “Renew.”
  • Please note: You cannot renew earlier than 180 days prior to the registration expiration date. No third-party vendor can renew your registration for you at this time.
How much does it cost to renew/register?
$5 through the FAADroneZone.
Do I need to register each drone/aircraft?
If you are registering as a Recreational Flyer, you only register once and use the same registration number on all drones that you own and intend on using for recreational flying. If you are trying to register under Part 107, then you will register each drone individually and each drone will get a separate registration number.
