As most know at this point, the Senate has passed HR 302. The next stop is the White House to the desk of President Trump. Now is the time to get your letter to the president written and submitted so the voice of the FPV community can be heard. These are your skies, that should be free to use, to explore, and to enjoy. Protect that right!
While this may be seen as many as a setback, this does not mean that all is lost. We as a community need to come together and keep pushing forward. There are many areas in the FAA Reauthorization Act that have been left for the FAA to put to committee, develop guidelines, and to overall hammer out the details. We need to be the voices in their ear that help to shape those guidelines.
The FPV Freedom Coalition is still developing at a fast pace. We are determined to represent the FPV pilot, and to help raise the volume of your voice and to protect your access to the skies. We will continue to push, to fight, to shout, and to work with the community, the government, and the public to bring our hobby out from the shadows and into the light. We need your help to do that though, because through you, our mission comes full circle.
Our ask of the FPV community is simple…. Write your letters to the President, let him know why this is important to you. Share your stories, share your love of the hobby. Keep shouting from the rooftops if you have to, we are listening. Keep innovating, keep pushing your skills to the next level. Most importantly, keep flying!
We will keep you updated as more information comes out, so stay tuned.
We have a great, immersive, and educational hobby. Help us fight for that. Join the FPV Freedom Coalition!
