    To its members:

    By now, nearly everyone should be aware that the FAA and DOT are considering requiring registration of some sUAS and have created a task force to help develop that process.

    As part of these efforts, the DOT and FAA have asked for public input on the issue and have identified 10 questions in the document titled "Clarification of the Applicability of Aircraft Registration Requirements for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Request for Information Regarding Electronic Registration for UAS" that can be found at: www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=FAA-2015-4378

    AMA asks that its members review the questions and offer comments. The government website for this project is cumbersome and only allows a person to either type comments into a text box or to upload a file. To help, however, we are offering suggested comments to the questions we feel would impact our membership the most. Feel free to provide your own comments on the registration of model aircraft. We want the DOT to know your thoughts on registration, whether you think its beneficial and necessary to ensure for safe operation in the National Airspace System (NAS) or state any objections or limits you would have to a registration process. Discuss any concerns you might have or suggestions with establishing thresholds of who or what should be exempted from registration and what method of registration would you favor.

    If you prefer, you can paste these comments directly into the response box. It's important that you submit your comments by November 6, 2015. Comments offered after this date will still be accepted, but might not carry as much weight as those submitted by the deadline.
