I'm still a little bewildered that folks are calling yesterdays FAA document a leak as we were sent it. Perhaps it was sent at the wrong time. They stuffed up with AIC 91/57 late last year which was withdrawn by accident. Maybe today sees the real removal of AIC 91/57 but on a Sunday. The Phantom on the lawn incident has done more to shove regs through than all the money thrown at it and talking heads since 2006.
Lets hope it does contain the sort of regs posted in the "leaked" document. If it does, the industry has lift off.
At sUAS News we believe this announce is after this November meeting http://www.suasnews.com/2014/11/32464/sfar-107-whispers-from-d-c/ but is happening quicker than expected because of that Phantom.
