The Federal Aviation Administration, known as the FAA wants to gets serious about stemming the threat of UAVs mixing in airspace with general aviation and airline traffic.
To help in their fight, the agency has appointed two new executives to head its UAS Integration Office.
The FAA has reported a sharp rise in encounters by individuals acting as pilot in command flying UAVs in airspace reserved for licensed pilots who fly general, commercial, and military aircraft.
Rich Lach, a California representative of the Recreational Aviation Federation made a three hour drive to attend the Inyo National Forest Planning Meeting to make the point that the RAF is a player. The agenda covered road analysis, which he knew would have nothing to do with airstrips. Rich Lach said that he figured that RAF we should have a presence at all United States Forest Service public planning meeting, He wanted to show that RAF's commitment to the process and it paid off again.
New Hangar Policy
On December 15, 2015, the Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors approved a new hangar waiting list policy for Columbia and Pine Mountain Lake Airports.
For years anyone could be on a waiting list for a hanger at either airport. This now has changed with the new waiting list policy. This new policy will require you to fill out a new hangar application, be over 18 years of age, have valid ID, and make a one-time deposit of three hundred dollars ($300.00) in advance.
