Positive Response to EAA Stance on Remote ID NPRM
January 23, 2020 - EAA’s stance on the FAA’s proposed rule on Remote Identification of Unmanned Aircraft Systems, and the potential negative effect on both manned and unmanned aviation, has quickly gained significant support throughout the flying community. This is especially true for those who fly traditional model aircraft safely at facilities throughout the nation. Just a few of the comments received by EAA and posted on online forum pages since last week’s news item was posted:
“We couldn't be any luckier than to have a Big Voice like the EAA to respond to the NPRM!”
“EAA's statement is so logical and straight to the point.”
“We are a natural stepping stone that many folks make in their life, from models to full scale. Thank you, EAA, for taking an interest!!”
“We really appreciate all the positive response from EAA members and others who share our concern about this NPRM,” said Sean Elliott, EAA’s vice president of advocacy and safety. “Even as EAA has brought forward sensible ideas to meet the needs of future airspace uses, there is a tremendous amount of work ahead as we finalize our comments to the FAA and encourage others in this community to make their feelings known.”
EAA will provide guidance to members who wish to comment in the coming weeks. When you do comment, please be respectful and use rational, fact-driven arguments in your own words. Form letters and emotional comments have much less impact on the regulatory process. More updates will be provided as they become available.
