EASA Plans for Model Aircraft...

All,

Obviously Greenacres MAC is not a political forum, however I believe that in this case, I am justified by making the GMAC Membership aware of possible changes to the European legislation regarding "traditional" model aircraft flying, as we all do.

Without going into the minute detail of the proposed regulations, there is a danger that if the wording or definitions of "unmanned aerial vehicles" is not changed or clarified, they could lump our models in with stricter regulations and / or registration of other types of aircraft, predominately "drones or quadcopters.

There is an online petition running to bring this to the attention of the UK Government.

Petition: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/168112/signatures/new

The petition only requires your name, email address and postcode to register your concern...
Building Winter 2015: Wiggo, Alliance (rebuild), Mini Whizzza (66% reduced plan), Foamie Spitfire (rebuild), SebArt Sukhoi SU-29 60E (rebuild)

I wish I knew about this petition back then, I would have signed it for sure. Was it successful at all?
