FAA Reauthorization: AMA Asks Members to Support Section 336 and Fight for “Reasonable Approach” to Drone Tracking and ID

As the deadline for FAA Reauthorization approaches – a deadline which looks increasingly unlikely to be met – the AMA is asking members to weigh in on Section 336 and remote ID and tracking requirements for drones.  In a video posted on the AMA’s Governement Relations blog, Interim Executive Director Chad Budreau explains that protection for model aircraft is in question: and that a comprehensive remote ID and tracking requirement could effect the AMA’s STEM projects and recreational flying fields.

While it’s “not the right time” to mobilize members in a letter writing campaign, Budreau encourages AMA members and recreational flyers to call lawmakers and voice their support for legal protections for recreational drones.
