    On December 12th, President Trump signed the National Defense Authorization Act which reinstated the FAA's sUAS registration requirement. As a result, ALL 'drones', which under the law are defined as any small Unmanned Aircraft System, or in plain English- ANY RC aircraft weighing more than 0.55LBS and less than 55LBS.   We strongly encourage all LLFC members to comply with the law until such time as the AMA can either secure a waiver allowing AMA members to use their AMA number instead or until further legal challenges and changes are made. 

    From the FAA Website: " You will be subject to civil and criminal penalties if you meet the criteria to register an unmanned aircraft and do not register. "

    Again, the Law defines Model Aircraft  as follows (originally from the FAA website FAQ)

    Is a UAS the same as a model aircraft?
    Congress defined a "model aircraft" as a UAS that meets all of the following: Is capable of sustained flight in the atmosphere Is flown within visual line-of-sight of the person operating it Is flown for hobby or recreational purposes
    We prefer to take a better safe than sorry approach to this issue. We'll be updating our member application to include your FAA registration number again as well as your AMA number.

    The law doesn't require you to register every plane/heli/drone you own. Only that you register yourself and affix the FAA number somewhere on your aircraft. It can be hidden inside the battery compartment as long as the number can be easily accessed with simple tools - like a screwdriver.
    If you haven't already registered, you can do so here: https://registermyuas.faa.gov/register
    The AMA has created a small FAQ to answer questions about this matter, and you can find it here: http://www.modelaircraft.org/aboutama/faa-uas-faq.aspx

    UPDATE!
    We've been monitoring the weather for our event on Saturday and it appears mother nature is planning on providing rain and thunderstorms throughout the day. Not a great way to celebrate model aviation.
      Because of this we'll be postponing the event until Sunday (this Sunday the 13th).
      Weather shows Sunday will be bright, sunny, and a little bit cooler.  We hope everyone can make it to the field on Sunday. Same time, same location.

    Everyone is welcome to come and spend the day with us! Whether you're an RC Pilot already or have always wondered about RC flying, you're invited to come out and spend a day of fun with us at our field in Wrentham, MA on Saturday August 13, 2017 from 11:00AM until 4:00PM. 
     
    Bring a folding chair or a blanket and enjoy the day watching the action, or ask one of our instructors for an intro flight.
     


    We will have:
    Free introductory flights with an Instructor. Food, drinks, and snacks available for a small donation to the DAV (Supporting Disabled Veterans). Raffle for an RC plane. Club members on hand to answer your RC or Club related questions. Free balsa glider for kids 12 and under. Our field is located at 206 North Street in Wrentham, MA
