FAA Registration Requirement Struck Down
« on: May 19, 2017, 10:18:36 PM »
I received this from the AMA today.

As you’ve probably heard by now, a federal appeals court today struck down the FAA’s registration requirement for recreational model aircraft.  Today’s Court ruling is effective immediately. As such, if you have not registered with the FAA, you are no longer required under the law to do so. For those of you who have already registered with the FAA, you may be wondering what this means for you. We are currently working to obtain answers from the FAA and will share more information as it becomes available.

I look forward to hearing more on this topic as it is released.

V/R,

Unfortunately it was added into the defense authorization bill that passed late last year, so it's back in effect.
