    On a different note. I have been checking into ultralights. It just may be a cheaper hobby with less regulation and I can land and takeoff at my club field with no AMA or dues.

    I am sure IMAC members are tickled to death with the AMA right now.

    TBH, I'm not sure that the relationship is mutually beneficial anymore. IMAC, acting independently, could still use the AMA event sanction process and require AMA membership for insurance and safety. The NATS could go back to moving the venue around the country making it more affordable and accessible to the members of IMAC.
     
  4. @49dimes I concur with you observation. I know in my RC "career" I have been "buzzed" by full scale at least 3 times that I remember. ALL three were below tree top level either down the runway and or crossing sometimes with multiple passes. I know on two of the three occasions we got the tail number and I suspect after we reported the incidents these jokers next flight were with an FAA instructor re-certifying there flight worthiness!:p

    Yeah my understanding the last fella was grounded for awhile. He had just been reported the week before flying low over a construction site, and those 2 were not his only reports.

    I had pulled together a list of the various groups and their relationships with each other some time ago - mainly because I was totally confused by how many there were.

    AMA is very well integrated into both FAI and NAA. Not sure if a SIG recognized by AMA could function stand alone or would need to reorganize itself to ensure it's fully self sufficient.
