Let the battle commence, people will be getting bored of me pushing this issue. But if you ever want to turn a dime with a UAS in the USA or have sensible rules for flight you had better start making a noise.
Patrick Egan starts his article in sUAS News like this
RCAPA cites incongruities in the UAS ARC charter and what is transpiring as part of an alleged “public process”. The charter and membership roster FOIA requested by sUAS News is applicable and of concern to the small business, end-user and academic community stakeholders. This egregious oversight is yet another example of what many in the global airspace integration community view as subpar leadership and questionable administrative actions taken by the UAPO (Unmanned Aircraft Program Office.) These and other purported irregular practices have been highlighted and are not going unnoticed by elected officials. It begs the question, at what point do we as taxpayers say, enough.
A letter to the FAA which is so far unanswered is also there.
This is just the first step, the NPRM process is ever closer and louder noise will be needed then.
RCAPA is free to join find them here and perhaps consider a tweet if you do such things.
Here is a copy and paste tweet.
