Remote ID Progress

The AMA Government Affairs team continues to work toward advocating for a more-inclusive solution to Remote ID.

AMA has been providing sensible recommendations for the hobbyist community to comply with Remote ID since this process started in 2017. The FAA is currently in the process of reviewing more than 50,000 comments that were submitted to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). We were told that the recreational community had a large impact during the comment period and there were many identified issues with the rule that will need better solutions, which include cost, broadcast abilities, and FAA Recognized Identification Areas.

Through this process, AMA has been collaborating with various security agencies, industry leaders, the DOT, and others to work toward finding a common solution. We believe that the FAA plans to announce a final Remote ID rule by the end of the calendar year. After a final rule has been announced, there will be an implementation period that could take up to three years. This lengthy process allows AMA to continue advocating for a less-extensive solution for hobbyists to comply with Remote ID.
