"Gary we have developed our own sylabus. Much of it is based on AMA regulations, RCAPA guidelines and our own company guidelines we have internally developed. The purpose is to start creating standards that are taught and implemented. We may open the…"
"Yes. I am new here. Had no idea about this until i started getting hundreds of pissed off drone enthusiasts. The reporter was told about us by someone in our community. He immediately identified with our situation and came out…"
"What approved training syllabus is being used?? I guess the AMA guidelines are the only ones over there that hold any sway. If you really want to become a pro perhaps move to Europe and operate legally until at least 2020, the year the FAA itself…"
"Hi Charles and the others .
I think you all bring a lot of very valid points to this and I was not trying to be offensive with my post, it was just an observation. I wish you good luck with the FAA and the AMA and I will be very interested on the…"

I reached out To Charles after watching the News story, I was really impressed with their interview. I thought they would be interested in some of the discussions we have here at DIY--regarding air-space integration and crafting a legal…"
"Sparky.. Charles can speak for himself but the classes part is likely a response to show the FAA that everyone that uses UAVs is not a bunch of rogue people that at any moment could accidently bring down a airplane. So as much fun as being a…"
Am I alone in looking at all the hype and attention this post has provided and now see that the same company allegedly "grounded by the FAA " are now offering classes in how to do this UAV stuff correctly.?? Has this all been some kind…"
"I really only think the way to resolution is to fight it... especially when you can do the same exact thing as a 'hobby'... an as far as the FAA is concerned it should be about safety not preventing legitimate businesses from growing and…"
