Hey folks, I typically would not cross pollinate between forums, but like FPVlabs and RMRC have done by raising awareness of the issues we as pilots are now facing, the admin over at multirotorforums.com has created a petition directly at Whitehouse.gov requesting that responsible and appropriate consideration be given to pilots who look to participate in aerial video/photo.

Please see the post and link below, and thanks for reading...

Thank you in advance for your time in considering this request.

The FAA is moving very quickly to prohibit the commercial use of Small Unmanned Aerial Systems, sUAS or “drones”, until a complete regulations document can be drafted.

Commercial sUAS operators have already been providing safe and affordable aerial services to a wide range of industries by following common-sense guidelines, many of which strongly resemble the current commercial sUAS guidelines in use in the UK.

This is not a fight with the FAA but a respectful assertion that the UK commercial sUAS regulations are a worthwhile way to move forward with sUAS integration while preserving the positive economic contribution that they are already making in the United States.

We therefore ask that you consider signing the petition at

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/pet...ately/2vbvcC0C (https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/compel-faa-adopt-uks-commercial-suas-standards-immediately/2vbvcC0C)

so that the commercial use of sUAS may continue for the benefit of those that operate and employ them in the course of their normal business operations.

Please also consider forwarding this email and/or posting its contents where other interested people might see it.

Thank you.
