RE: Drones and Federal Preemption
President Donald J. Trump
1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Washington, DC 20006
Pricey President Trump,
I’m writing you in the present day to attraction not solely to the President of our nice nation but in addition as a businessperson that has private expertise with the Federal Aviation Administration.
The notion that Federal, State, and native governments are going to all be on the identical web page regarding industrial aviation is past any expectation. What’s required is a few of the similar protections afforded all different sectors by Federal preemption, so this rising expertise can have an opportunity to flourish.
I make this attraction on behalf of the tens of 1000’s of unaffiliated small and medium-sized enterprise homeowners, operators and innovators in addition to the tons of of 1000’s of pastime customers that don’t have any voice or illustration within the Nationwide Airspace integration effort.
The teams and people that declare to characterize the industrial end-user have by and enormous by no means developed, fielded, or run a enterprise utilizing Unmanned Plane Programs. The Distant Management Aerial Pictures Affiliation’s membership is especially small enterprise individuals, innovators and repair suppliers who’ve accomplished that very factor.
Lots of the “details” and “figures” bandied about for market share and the variety of customers has been questionable, at greatest. The FAA has favoured giant companies; international corporations and traders whereas the industrial end-user has systematically been shut out of the dialog. Previously, we’ve got requested the FAA to promulgate solely widespread sense guidelines after scientifically figuring out the dangers to the NAS and other people on the bottom.
We’re a grassroots affiliation, and we ask that you simply take into account our objectives of fostering a local weather that builds enterprise and creates jobs whereas minimizing the burdening on the taxpayer.
