I distinctly remember when the Drone craze started alot of us tried to tell the AMA that they should not include drones (non-LOS and FPV)... but they chose to ignore that and instead welcome them with open arms... all at about the same time that drones and ONLY drones were responsible for getting the negative attention of the FAA and law enforcement in general.
I don't completely disagree,..however, the FAA, by definition, lumped everything together, so I completely understand the AMA embracing what we call "drones" (multirotors) rather than distancing themselves. The FAA lumped it all together anyway so if the AMA didn't accept them it would have been guilt by association anyway. The faa doesn't mention "drone",.. they call everything we fly Suas, small unmanned ariel systems. the multirotor redneck that hits an airliner is flying an Suas, and we're all flying Suas,.. so we're all the same according to the FAA,......unfortunately.

I want to point out something that seems to be MISSED... When I learned to fly full-scale, the FAA made it clear that all aircraft aren't equal. If I got checked-out in a C-150, I could NOT just jump into a C-150 Aerobat, C-152, C-172 or PA-140, PA-160 ect.. Had to be listed as Type Checked-out for each. NOW all the suddeden, they have AmNeIsia about different craft types & mission duties for RC toys?? And they don't know the diff from a Line Of Sight craft vs a Autonomus OR Remote Camera (FPV) type?? Really???

Strange,.. when I got my private in 91 the regs stated (and i believe still do) that single engine land was good for single engine land, as long as it's not high perf(over 200hp) or complex (controllable pitch prop/retracts), and it's under a certain weight. I think that was 12,500lbs, but I forget. any of those caveats, or turbine, required a type rating. Insurance, however, generally requires you to have experience in the type, or be checked out by an instructor , so unless you own(ed) a plane, you rented (we all did), and everywhere you rented from required a checkout for insurance reasons.Gary Wright

just looked at latest MODEL AVIATION and on page 84, picture there says the
AMA now offers COMMERCIAL DRONE INSURANCE. Is there any other form of model aviation being offered insurance for COMMERCIAL MONEY MAKING operations. I'm not in favor of supporting this endeavor.

Yup . . . I licensed in 1988, and over 200 or pitch prop/retract required nothing more than a "complex" endorsement, not a different license. I did my license in a C182, so could jump in anything legally short of multi or turbine . . .

I'm not in favour of having to be registered nor do I think it will solve anything. I was just saying that when things get out of hand then they start regulating.spending time, paying attention

I was cheap, flew 150s, but then most cherokees, 172,182 for HP endorsement, arrow for complex endorsement, and the most fun I ever had flyign fullscale was getting a tailwheel endorsement in a champ,..but I digress

I bought 1/3 share of a decent 1959 C182 . . . manual everything. Figuring costs, I either got a free license or a free share in the plane compared to renting a C152 . . . Autogas STC anyone?

The 182 alone did complex - variable pitch and over 200HP. Flew an arrow later for retract time, but had no bearing on the endorsement.

I did my training on a Piper 1968 PA-28-140 (Hershey bar wing) and subsequent check ride on the 160.......After that, I did most of my flying on a 180 and got cross-checked out on a Cessna 172 due to a friend that had his ticket and preferred the high wing...... He cross trained on the low wing and we switched off flying both for quite a few years. That allowed us to fly the Cessna 150 and 152 as well without any further intervention from an instructor....There was a stint where I also flew a Beech Sundowner in a different club but that again involved in a "check ride" by one of their instructors....

Gary is correct.... my "ticket" says "single engine land"..... which means that anything in a single engine "category" is up for grabs without any further certification from the FAA.... only thing needed was an endorsement from an certified instructor and (as stated), for insurance purposes.... never could justify owning a plane.

There have been many "memorable" moments since the beginning but one that really sticks in my mind is doing the pre-flight check on my very first lesson and having to hand prop that 1968 Cherokee !! Turns out that one of the battery cables needed replacement......
Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

nothing,.. just a tangential move from the real topic. I apologize that I contributed.

I do, however, think its a bit humorous when i hear complaints about the "high cost" of AMA from those of us in a hobby that costs thousands. There are many benefits as mentioned in various posts in this thread, but when you boil it all down, insurance is the primary benefit. Not being a member is like doing something very enjoyable without protection because the "protection" costs too much.

...if you have no other insurance. which leaves what? the right to fly at an AMA field? The only reason clubs require an AMA card is for the insurance...Cause we all know having a card doesnt mean you have any clue of what your doing. The fields trash can is full of that proof...

Lets for arguments sake remove the insurance aspect of it...

Then what would AMA be good for? Training.... Youtube does it better,... building plans...internet. Flying events/news... Facebook. Scholarships... enough to buy books for one semester.
