Eventually "Common Sense"
and the "Established Value" of our sporting model
airplanes will surface in all agencies concerned. Model
airplanes are not a nuisance or public safety issue when
non-autonomous and line-of-sight, as first
established by the A.M.A. decades ago.
We went through a similar
challenge in 2012 and it was resolved by an act of the
U.S. Congress that protected model airplanes from
governmental regulations. "Common Sense" prevailed then.
Frank Tiano has confirmed
that the Lakeland Airport Manager has approved the
Florida Jets event for 2016. Operations will proceed as
scheduled and previously conducted.
