LATEST DRONE LETTER FROM FAA

FAA logo

KEEP YOUR DRONE AWAY FROM WILDFIRES

There are lots of great places to fly your drones, but over or near a wildfire isn’t one of them. In fact, drone operators who interfere with wildfire suppression efforts are subject to civil penalties of up to $27,500 and possible criminal prosecution.

Here’s why it’s important: Aerial firefighting aircraft, such as airtankers and helicopters, fly at very low altitudes, just a couple hundred feet above the ground and in the same airspace as hobby and recreational drones. This creates the potential for a mid-air collision that could seriously injure or kill wildland firefighters in the air or on the ground. 

As a result of unlawful drone operations near fires this year, fire managers have temporarily grounded all aerial firefighting aircraft on several occasions for safety reasons. Shutting down firefighting operations could cause wildfires to become larger and can threaten lives, property, and valuable natural and cultural resources.

The bottom line is “If You Fly, We Can’t."

Please fly responsibly – keep your drone away from wildfires.

This was the flight readiness step, which eliminated 19 of the 43 registered teams, even before the competition began.

Notice to Club Members -

At the Club Meeting on April 19, 2014, it was decided to take some measures to increase membership and stimulate public interest in RRCC and its activities. A committee will be formed at the next meeting on May 17th, 2014, to consider various ideas for achieving these goals and to make recommendations to the club membership. Those with ideas to consider, or interested in joining the committee, should contact Oscar Weingart at rrcccontact@yahoo.com.

Some ideas discussed at the meeting included:

(1)    An Open House, or Air Show, with food service, at the field, with trainers available to allow the public to fly a RC model.

(2)    Posters and flyers to be distributed to local hobby shops.

(3)    Establishing relationships with local schools.

(4)    Articles and event listings in local newspapers.

 

As of Today, about 2 years later, no suggestions have been received, but it occured to your webmaster that our activities with

 the UCR UAS Team might get us some publicity. Also, AMA has a program of cash awards to clubs that get publicity. It is also

 possible that we may be eligible for AMA Leader Club status. - Oscar
