Please keep “Rule 336” of the FAA Modernization act INTACT so it will protect model aviation hobbyists.

The FAA, Department of Defense, and certain members of congress are looking to remove a current section of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act that directly protects model aviation hobbyists. This protection called “Rule 336” exempts those involved in model aviation for “hobby & recreation” from serious & unnecessary regulation from the FAA. The FAA & officials claim they must do something about “drones/multi-rotor copters”. However, there are hundreds of thousands of safe, CBO rule-abiding, fixed-wing R/C pilots being included. If Rule 336 is modified or removed, our hobby will be dealt a heavy blow – hobby shops will close, club memberships will drop, flying fields will disappear, and young pilots will be discouraged from the great fun of building and flying models.
