AMA Drone Report 04.18.19: Flt Over People, Not Drone Fault, FAA ANPRM

Also: Gatwick Drone 'Chaos', Fenway Park Foolishness, Utah Legislature, Parrot ANAFI Thermal

AMA has responded to the FAA's NPRM on the Operation of sUAS Over People.

For model aircraft hobbyists, however, they do not anticipate these rules will have a significant impact on their existing guidelines for safe and responsible operation. "...For years, our National Model Aircraft Safety Code has been recognized by Congress, as well as state legislatures, as a safe and effective means of managing the model aircraft community. Our members know where, when and how to fly safely and they do not present a risk to the airspace," the AMA commented. On March 29, 2018, a pilot and passenger departed Thames Aerodrome in N
