Public aircraft yes, exempt from FAA oversight no. That document has more to do with preventing aircraft that support "public" operations from being considered commercial than anything else. The intent appears to be an effort to ease the capability of non-public aircraft to be compensated for supporting public aircraft without the burden of being considered a commercial operator with associated commercial requirements.

You don't have to be a cop to fly a helicopter low, it's already authorized by CFR for helicopters to fly lower than 500' with due regard to the safety of persons and property. That decision is up to the pilot in command but could be criticized by any number of FAA departments depending if he crashes or not.

You would do well to check with FAA before trying to quote them.

Haha, you should let the FAA know that they sold the farm. I'm sure they'd find it interesting to know that public aircraft don't need to follow the rules of the air (CFRs). I'm sure a lot of other pilots would want to know that too. Send it to AOPA quick!!!

AOPA already knows. That's where I first heard it from. One of the concerns is maintenance on airframes. "Public" aircraft are not required to follow FAA rules for maintenance so if you want to buy an x-police heli, for example, and you actually want to fly it, check the maintenance records because YOU are NOT exempt.

What happened is Australia?

What goes up must come down...and when it does it'll probably be expensive.

Some moron decided to chase an airliner or something, I think it ended up on YouTube or in the national news. FAA was on the phone to the AMA before the virtual ink was dry.

What was that supposed to accomplish? I thought the FAA already knew about model aircraft and the incident happened in Australia.

And why would they be calling the AMA about an incident that happened in Austrailia (and has nothing to do with AMA or FAA)??

Are you saying that the recent email that came from AMA about the FAA regulations had anything to do with that stunt in Austrailia, because if you are saying that.. then I think you are very mis-informed.

FAA wants to prevent the same situation from happening here. While the plane in the video go nowhere hitting the jet, it was at the same altitude and close enough to be wrecked by the turbulence in the wake of the jet. It is conceivable therefore that the plane could easily have been flown into a turbine intake if he had been there 30 seconds sooner.

Of course, something like that actually happening by accident is slim to none, and chances of it happening deliberately are vanishingly small. if someone wanted to bring down an airliner they'd spend 50 bucks on a black market soviet RPG, not 1500 bucks on a jet-turbine model.

the stuff that is going on now with the AMA and FAA...
has been long in the works... long before the Ausie stunt.. the release of the info to the public just so happens to be in sync with the dumb event... not related... simple timeline explains that

In life there is no spacebar!
