AMA is moving!!!

AMA EC meeting July, 26 - '08 Minutes

http://www.modelaircraft.org/member...8ecminutes.aspx

Emphasis added

b. FAA ARC (Aviation Rulemaking Committee) Report
R. Hanson noted the use of unmanned aerial systems has intensified over the last 3-5 years; and the success has spurred interest in domestic application. The FAA has tasked the ARC with creating/recommending rules/regulations that would allow aircraft to operate in the commercial/public use environment. Hanson reported on the meetings he has attended; noted they will be gathering additional data through a survey of AMA members regarding flying activities; will review the standard type aircraft description for possible rewording and to make more clear. He will attend a demonstration and model test at Edwards Air Force Base on August 27, and will purchase an on-board system to aid in this testing. Argenio will check on the wholesale price of this system relative to purchasing one for each district. <<<<<<<<<<
