They never had intentions on working with the AMA on "unsanctioned" airspace! They just have to do what the "money and Government" told them to do. That's f**k us over!
Just like any other Outdoor Activity in this country if money is to be made for the big corporations and peoples liberties and freedoms get in the way then Oooo Wellll. Pay big government to have Congress sign in laws to make it happen! Period! There is no other reason!!

Just so people are not confused, there is no pending legislation, this is a done deal. All that is happening now is FAA is implementing the law as written and AMA is feeling double crossed since FAA seems to be going back on their word about how they planned to implement that law.

The O.P. indicating that there is some new law pending is misleading. All this revolves around the implementation of Section 349 of P.L. 115-254 which was signed into law in October 2018.

It's called Hypocrisy. I have two daughters I had hoped to get interested in aviation...but after all this I've redirected their interests...

I'm sure there are some EAA members among us. Is there anything the EAA can do to support the fight to end this ridiculous attack on Model aviation? Strength in numbers fellas. I'd be interested to know what the EAA thinks about what's going on with our situation. I know that many EAA members come from a Model aviation background and continue to be involved in flying models.

Your hopes have come true. Just commenting on the side of humor as there is none to be had lately.

And I would ask him what statistical data he has that warrants this idiotic regulation on a hobby that hasn't required this level of regulation in it's entire existence. And having him as your representative...

Oh, that one is easy. He got it from AOC and that nasty little brat Greta Thunberg.

Well, while FAA is charged with implementing this, it was Congress who actually wrote the law.
