AMA Drone Report 10.04.18: Good/Bad News About FAA Reauth, FAI Drone Races

Also: ParaZero FAA Waiver, Drone-Balloon Collision, Drone Operator Cited, Mavic 2 Pro

FAA Reauthorization is all but a done deal now... awaiting all but a certain signature from the President.

And now... the work begins in earnest... because the model aviation community had some wins and some losses in this massive 1200 page bill. First... let’s look at the good news. And... here comes the bad news about Reauthorization... in which a few aeronautically ignorant elected officials decided to side with the commercial droners against the hundreds of thousands of model aviators that have helped build the world of aviation up to where it is today. There is just one month to go before the first FAI World Drone Racing Championships kicks-off in Shenzhen, China. Some 115 of the world's best drone-racing pilots from 32 nations will converge on the tech city of Shenzhen in southern China for four days of high-calibre racing, November 1-4. Qualification and Elimination rounds will play out over the long weekend before the Finals. In FAI Drone Racing up to six radio-controlled, multi-rotor model aircraft fight it out to be the fastest around a closed circuit. Pilots must navigate a series of gates and obstacles – whoever is fastest, wins. Races typically take three minutes. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!
