This is happening all across the US, so many people are violating FAA regs and delivering packages BVLOS, Ops. Over people and Ops. Over moving vehicles it’s become the norm. These operators are normalizing the risk without type certification, part 135 or frankly any care for aviation safety. If anything because we are seeing zero enforcement from the FAA it seems as if these operations are ok. Also quite surprising to see AUVSI posting this when clearly operations over people is violated and there is no parazero safe air system installed on the drone. It would be really nice to get the FAAs position on drone delivery during covid-19.
Is the "Online sUAS Registration" site having problems? Under both Chrome & Safari browsers, I'm getting this error:
These simple CDC precautions could save lives.
This page only has pictures of autonomous quadcopters on it. Here’s a picture of a line of site operated model airplane that has zero autonomous flying equipment and no camera.
If you care about personal flight please comment on Remote ID before March 2. Remote ID, as proposed, kills model aviation without any valid reason. This threatens the future of all personal aviation. As a third generation flyer, it is a terrible shock that our beloved hobby and the sky I fly in could be taken away. Remote ID is, unnecessarily, a takeover of our low altitude and private airspace. The blow that is being delivered to the model aviation community could come next to manned recreational aviation. Our sky is a natural resource and a place to discover the joy of flight. Those of us who know what it means to fly must speak up today. If you love to fly, dream of flying, or wish to see future pilots and aircraft take to the sky, please comment on Remote ID today.
A new group has just been formed that intends to integrate Hobby Shop Owners and interested parties into the mix and is intended to foster the continued efforts to keep the recreational and hobby aircraft sector alive and well - in a rational and professional forum for discussion and sharing ideas. Membership criteria may appear rather stringent, but if forward and proactive progress is to be assured - it is hoped that the criteria will bring the best and most informed people and organizations "to the table" and not to clutter discussion with potentially false information, personal feelings, or distracting information. If you feel you do not meet the intent of the criteria (sorry to limit membership at this critical time in our industry) - we're sure you know someone who does - Please feel free to share this post with them. Thank you.🇺🇸👍 https://www.facebook.com/groups/saverecreationalaircraft/
The fact that the FAA keeps using the word “drone” to mean hundreds of different types of sUAS shows me that the FAA’s become totally and completely clueless.
