    The commenting deadline for the FAA's Interpretation of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft is July 25, 2014 at 11:59 PM.

    This Interpretive Rulemaking will:

    • - create actual law banning on commercial operations;
      - ban FPV operations; and
      - allow the FAA to use all existing Federal Aviation Regulations against model aircraft operators.
    Commenting has jumped dramatically.

    • Last week there were only about 3,000 comments.
      Yesterday morning, it was up to about 8,000.
      In the past 24 hours it has jumped to 22,568 comments.
    That's about 14,000 comments submitted in a single day!

    If you haven't commented yet, here's an easy-to-use guide: https://app.box.com/s/fvl2k6bm5x1za922mzse
    Then, post your comment at: http://www.regulations.gov/#!submitComm ... -0396-0001

    Thanks.

    Holy crap! That's awesome! Only a few days ago it was 4,000. This is a huge turnaround and great response!

    Yes it is. The how-to document I'm hosting appears to be helping.

    Thanks so much for posting about this. I had no idea they were even accepting comments and that the commenting period was close to ending. I have commented and encourage everyone reading these forums to do the same! :shock:

    To the extent you and others are able to, please get the word out on FB, Twitter, R/C forums you belong to, etc. Feel free to use the info in my post above.

    Thx.
