MCDO Legal Fund Begun for Michigan Drone Battle

Legal Battle to Stop $500 Fines for Drone Flights On State, Public, Property

Ottawa County, Michigan may have a fight on its hands if a local law firm has their way. A new drone ordinance disallows drones being flown on or around county property, as well as from taking photographs or recording video of certain public property in the state. The new law violates a higher Michigan state law that prohibits local and county governments from creating their own local restrictions on drone operations. The state is one of 17 that passed its own preemption law to create a more stable operating environment for the burgeoning UAV industry. In 2021, the Michigan Coalition of Drone Operators sued Ottawa County and won an injunction prohibiting the county from enforcing its unlawful ordinance. But the County is appealing the decision to the Michigan State Court of Appeals and once again place drone operators in jeopardy of fines and jail for their legal flights.

Stored Plane Donated to Tech School

New Virginia Tech School AMT Program Gets Helpful Training Aid

A small technical school in Harrisonburg, Virginia received an impressive gift for their AMT program, a 6-place Cessna 320E Executive Skyknight (file photo). Massanutten Technical Center received the aircraft from George Roussel following an unsuccessful repair process before entering storage. The school is beginning to offer a new 2-year aviation maintenance program for the 2022-2023 school year, and the Cessna is a vitally needed piece of training equipment for incoming students. Roussel's aircraft was purchased as a convenient runabout for his medical practice, but a troublesome experience with an inept cut-and-run mechanic resulted in "near destruction," he said.
