3 Separate Lawsuits Challenge FAA Interpretive Rule

GetFPV and Lumenier (under my FPV Manuals LLC holding company) have joined the UAS America Fund, the Drone Pilots Association, and SkyPan in one of the 3 independent lawsuits that were filed to challenge the FAA interpretive rule today, Friday 8/22/2014. Our suit was filed alongside the separate suits filed by the AMA and the Council on Governmental Relations which represents 188 research universities.

Awesome! This is what we need. People who are willing to stand up and fight the juggernaut of government idiocy. Good job.

Thank you. If there was ever a time for solidarity in the FPV space, now is that time. I appreciate your support.

Why, this calls for a song. Steppenwolf comes to mind!

Quote:
And though the past has it's share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But it's protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it's a monster and will not obey

The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem friendly and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind

'Cause the people got fat and grew lazy
Now their vote is like a meaningless joke
You know they talk about law, about order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told

'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin'
This has been brought to you from a time when music had something to say...

Let's shred that noose with more than just a guitar solo. Thanks for fighting the fight. Peace is not the greatest good that mankind can aspire to.

Wow...how many years has the FAA and AMA gotten along together.

I guess for now at least...those days are gone. They really had no choice, they did what they had to do...for the future of the hobby.

Certainly not good luck. Good FORTUNE. hope you're fishing vigorously for heavy hitting political allies too. And remember: if you find yourself in a fair fight you didn't plan well enough.

The FAA is unwilling to listen to the AMA. Perhaps they will listen to the Judicial Branch instead. This is going to be interesting.
