Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx to make registration announcement Monday 0930 EST.
“Unfortunately the task force recommendations may ultimately prove untenable by requiring the registration of smaller devices that are essentially toys and do not represent safety concerns. Based on its years of experience the AMA cautioned against unnecessarily encumbering the toy industry and urged the task force to consider several factors when determining the threshold at which UAS technology should be registered – including weight, capability and other safety-related characteristics. But, the recommendations do not reflect this comprehensive approach. The task force only considered weight, requiring any device up to 250 grams (0.55 pounds) to register. We believe weight should be only one of several factors considered when determining where the threshold should be for UAS registration.”
Как бы ни было, решение FAA икотой отобъётся всему миру. Врядли кто то осмелиться идти напролом и принимать решения, идущие вразрез с мнением FAA. Ждём.
