Section 101.43   Endangering the safety of the National Airspace System.


Section 101.43   Endangering the safety of the National Airspace System.

No person may operate model aircraft so as to endanger the safety of the national airspace system.

 

My Commentary:

Part 101 needs to be understood that it is a copy-paste of Section 336 which prohibited the FAA from creating and rule or regulation governing model aircraft. This section only makes sense since it said the FAA could do enforcement actions against those operating in an unsafe manner.
