AMA leadership disagrees with you. FAA says right on the Registration as has been posted; "fly below 400'"

AMA Safety code says:

(c) Not fly higher than approximately 400 feet above ground level within three (3) miles of an airport without notifying the airport operator.

No altitude limitation.

if no paper drone trace then hefty fine
400' is just free guidance, never mind

You left out some words. It's don't exceed 400' Within 3 miles of an airport without notifying tower.

AMA doesn't cap you outside 3 nm.

Did you send these dudes the memo? I don't think they got it.

Is it OK for AMA members to lie on the registration form?

always the operator's responsibility to follow the approved rules

Can airport manager make law ?
I hear our airport manager is wanting to not only cap our altitude to 400 but tell us how far out we can fly ! We have a meeting with him coming up so any facts I can use will be greatly appreciated.

You just have to notify him, he can't make rules. How close is your field to the airport?

I have met with him in a group and got the feeling that he likes to pound his chest ! I just feel unsure of what I can really do if he starts demanding his interpatation of the FAA Rules / guidelines / ?????

I'd think a tower operator has some veto power. Otherwise you could call up LAX and say "I'll be over here near 2 mile final doing my thing. Sorry if that messes with traffic. Deal with it."

Pretty absurd to believe there's no veto power there.

I didn't say he can't shut you down but they can't make rules.

We "The club i belong to" aren't wanting to be the thorn in his backside !!! and i am going into the meeting hoping to foster a great working relationship with our local airport. That is our goal. In preparation for this meeting and of hearing of his supposed intent i have read 336, 112-95, 105, and 540-d but i just wanted to be prepared... I kind of feel like the middle man being fed to the lions. Ama says one thing Faa implies something else and i'm suppose to make sense of it all.

You certainly have the right approach. It's always good to try and work things out like this at the local level.
