A Call to Action :: Deadline is July 25, 2014!

This is a call to action. The FAA has released their interpretation of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft established by Congress in the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012.

This interpretation puts our hobby in great risk. It can essentially change how we operate in this hobby forever if we don’t band together and take action.

What action?

Learn.
Comment.
Sign.

Learn what the proposed interpretation is about, and how it effects you and others in the RC hobby.

Go to http://regulations.gov and comment on the interpretation to let the FAA know that there is a better way.

Go to http://change.org and sign the petition for the FAA to reconsider their interpretation.

FAA Docket # FAA-2014-0396

Deadline is July 25, 2014
