National Recreational Flyers offers reasonable safety standards and currently has free membership.
For as long as it is possible, [NRF] has no dues or fees.
The only requirement for [NRF] membership is a desire to fly recreational sUAS safely.
You are an [NRF] member if and when you say so.
There are no dues or fees for [NRF] membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.
[NRF] needs a logo, a link for registration and a downloadable printable membership card.
The [NRF] should consider selling a laminated Rules and Regulation placard.
The placard must be conspicously displayed during sUAS operations to indicate
an [NRF] sanctioned flight is in progress.
Send me a PM.
Membership is open to anyone in the world although this is a USA based organization.
The operating and membership structure is based on the guidelines of "12 step groups". Membership is "at will" requiring no dues or fees. We will keep it this way as long as humanly possible.
I think a down loadable "membership card" is a great idea and would add uniformity and credibility to the organization. This feature (and others) will be added shortly.I just started working with my graphic arts department to develop some prettier materials so it won't be so ugly for much longer.
I mainly wanted to get a web presence ASAP because of the current sUAS situation in the USA.
How it works:
"1. There are no dues or fees for [NRF] membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.
2. The only requirement for membership is a desire to safely fly recreational, sport or acaedmic sUAS.
3. The [NRF] has one primary purpose, to provide a safe program for all recreational sUAS flyers to participate in."
Just be absolutely clear, which nation does national refer to?
Is this like the "world" series?
NFA is a USA based organization but anyone in the world may join as long as it is legal to do so in their country.
We are using infrastructure of Alcoholics Anonymous and similar organizations to operate. No one on the planet is excluded from membership.
I wish I knew of other "self-supporting, no dues or fees" organizations.
AA is was the first (I think) in the USA and most self-help orgs I know of follow their principles of operation.
As for other orgs challenging anything, that my lessen their chances of sueing us. If we aren;t "real" how can they sue? I nly care that we meet the US Gov't definition of CBO and nothing else.
AA is trying to reduce an activity which is internationally accepted as a bad thing.
NRF is trying to increase an activity which is internationally associated with bad things,
so, promote the good things to take focus away from the bad things. I would like to see NRF producing positive rational marketing support for amateur modelling.
How about starting with good promotion of return to home fail-safe and stabilisation. RTL could save many $$$$ of accidents, nevermind the safety benefits. Maybe it would become unacceptable to fly a heavy model without this kind of safety device.
The safety rules are based on th original ARC/FAA recommendations.
In order to add to them would require a definitive rationale for doing so.
We can't just add/remove items at will (unlike another CBO).
Do some research for justification and write up a rule. I have no problem adding stuff other than my limited time until July.
