Hobbyist LAANC Access Is Just Around the Corner: An Interview with Tyler Dobbs, Government Affairs Director at the Academy of Model Aeronautics

Recommended Posts

We recently interviewed Tyler Dobbs, Government Affairs Director at the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), to learn more about what the AMA does for hobbyist drone pilots, when hobbyists might get access to LAANC for instant airspace authorizations to fly in controlled airspace, and to hear his opinion on how hobbyists are represented in policy-making.

The AMA is one of the largest model aviation associations in the world—it's a self-supporting non-profit, whose primary aim is to promote the development of model aviation as a recognized sport and worthwhile recreation activity. They currently boast a membership of over 195,000.

Read the interview with Tyler here, and chime in on this thread to share your thoughts on the AMA, LAANC access for hobbyists, or anything related to the hobbyist conversation.
