New AMA coalition forms to fight Remote ID rule

New AMA coalition forms to fight Remote ID rule

A lot of people in the drone and aviation don’t like the Federal Aviation Administration’s proposed remote ID rule, but one of the most outspoken groups against it is the Academy of Model Aeronautics. So much, that the AMA this month launched a coalition to protect the hobby model aviation industry, and its first big project is fighting for a different remote ID rule. “As written, the proposed remote ID rule would seriously disincentivize participation in the model aviation hobby,” according to a statement from the coalition. The Federal Aviation Administration released its proposal for Remote ID — a sort of electronic license plate system for drones — at the end of 2019. And the FAA’s Remote ID proposal unleashed a firestorm of Internet comments, many of which were against the proposal (you can read a handful of the comments against it here). While a bulk of the support for the coalition comes from the AMA, here’s the complete list of the companies involved, including aviation associations, drone-specific companies, hobby shops and manufacturers: The logo for the newly formed coalition.
