Issue Date: September 14, 2015

On September 14, 2015 the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) sent a letter to NAR President Chris Polychron. The letter provided AMA"s analysis of the FAA’s dataset of drone reports. The AMA's analysis concluded that "there is some useful information in the FAA’s dataset – data that could help guide policy conversations about drones and help all stakeholders identify solutions to mitigate true safety risks. But the data is only useful if the FAA takes the time to analyze and accurately characterize it; the same holds true for the media and others."
