The AMA (Acadamey of Model Aeronautics) is the voice of model aviation in the USA and as an individual the FAA won’t listen to you. But when you speak through the AMA you have the cumulative effect of about 150,000 voices, many of whom are voters. Politicians guide the FAA and politicians take notice when a lot of voters speak up
Contact the AMA at -- www.modelaircraft.org
-- for detailed information on how to add your voice to all of the other modelers who could be affected by this.
Keep 'em Flying,
