The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) needs your help to protect Section 336 and the future of our hobby. Cliff Whitney, the owner, and founder of Atlanta Hobby, UAV Experts, UAV Expert News, and UAV Ground School, has written the representatives for the State of Georgia a letter, please consider doing the same for your state.
The following was sent to all AMA members:
We need your help.
There is talk that the next reauthorization bill for the Federal Aviation Administration will eliminate the Special Rule for Model Aircraft – also known as Section 336 – which has allowed AMA to manage our members and fly safely and responsibly, as we have for over 80 years. Losing the Special Rule would be a devastating blow to our hobby.
Please click here to send a letter to your elected representatives in support of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft.
This is a critical moment to let your elected representatives know the importance of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft and the role of community-based organizations such as AMA.
Our community has operated safely for decades – long before the recent advent of drones. Model aviation has played a critical role in the innovations of new technology and encouraging young people to pursue an interest in science and technology fields. More than that, this long-standing hobby has been passed down from generation to generation and is a tradition for many American families.
We need your help to demonstrate the value of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft not only for our community but everyone. Please make your voices heard by contacting your elected representatives today.
