FAA to announce new rules for sUAS, today Sunday (yes sunday)

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 They stuffed up with AIC 91/57 late last year which was withdrawn by accident.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.

WHEN: 10 a.m., Sunday, February 15, 2015

Pst? Gmt? Est?

EST is my guess as they are on that side, but above is all they say in the press release!

Zulu, if they were a real FAA...

Funny 1 bad incident get's the ball rolling faster than years of hard work. I guess things just work like that. I am very excited about the idea of all the opportunity this will offer for so many people. remember "Never give up" and "Sky's the limit"

Gary are you sure of that number? I just called it and it says their is no conference call.

Comment by Brett Horton on February 15, 2015 at 8:02am

I am getting the same message... Yes that is the number on the FAA.gov website as well

Number is not working?

Comment by Chris Paulson on February 15, 2015 at 8:03am

Dead here too. Perhaps they're just running a few minutes behind?

I think I missed the bit about it being a super-de-duper top-secret need-to-know nothing-to-see-here conference call.  Go to the Bat Phone!

Hopefully running late.... But again this is our government.... they are running late....
