Default New draft of FAA reauthorization bill

Originally Posted by AMA Bulletin
Dear members,

Rep. Bill Shuster, who chairs the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, introduced a new draft of the FAA reauthorization bill, titled the "Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization (AIRR) Act." This bill is critical to preserving our voluntary, community-based approach to the model aviation community across the country.

While we are carefully reviewing the bill's language, it is important to note that the Committee recognized the community-based approach under the "Special Rule for Model Aircraft." The language in that section follows very similarly to Section 336* of the 2012 FAA reauthorization bill. We were also pleased to see that the new language recognizes the important role that model aircraft play in STEM education.

However, there are still some changes to the bill that could further strengthen and clarify the Special Rule for Model Aircraft. In the weeks ahead, we will be working closely with Chairman Shuster and the Committee on our suggested improvements.

We will keep you updated on this important bill and AMA's ongoing work to protect our hobby.

As always, thank you for your support of AMA.

Dave Mathewson
Executive Director
To hasten your search the section regarding Model Aircraft begins around page 200(!) of this bill (link to PDF is on the page, I cannot seem to copy the link to it), and repeals Section 336. However I gave it a quick lookover and am glad to say that at least there is absolutely no mention of altitude restrictions or even recommendations. As this is a bill, if it passes it will become law.

Thanks. How did you manage to extract it (if I may inquire of your trade secrets)?
