The FAA recently released a draft Advisory Circular (AC) 91-57C, which will soon replace the current version, AC 91-57B. The AC details the recognition of community-based organizations (CBOs), educational UAS operations, a waiver process for sanctioned events, a process for higher altitudes at fixed flying sites in Class G airspace, and night operations among other topics. AMA submitted comments requesting changes to the language regarding FPV operations, sanctioned events, CBO safety guidelines, and a variety of other points within the AC.
