FAA Publishes AC 91-57C and AC 89-3

The FAA has published Advisory Circular (AC) 91-57C, which outlines the requirements for community-based organization (CBO) recognition, as well as AC 89-3, which outlines the FAA-Recognized Identification Area (FRIA) application process. AMA has provided a list of FAQs for both Advisory Circulars at modelaircraft.org/amainaction.

AMA was the first organization to apply to the FAA for CBO recognition. After the application has been fully reviewed, we will update our members on AMA’s CBO status.

Finally, the FRIA application process has been opened; however, it is not yet functional for recreational users. AMA will apply on behalf of our clubs when the FAA begins accepting these applications.
