New FAA Required FRIA Member Requisites Take Effect

Effective March 16, 2024, the FAA Remote ID and/or Flying a UAS at a Club Field Authorized FRIA has begun.

What does this mean to our ClovisRC Members?  Essentially, while flying at one of our two sanction fields; Peg or McDonald Park, NO Remote ID is required.

HOWEVER, The FAA also requires that all UAS Drone Pilots – All Radio Control Hobbyists – must complete two processes. 

First, to obtain a TRUST Certificate; which requires a Q&A Common Sense Test; and, obtain the TRUST Certificate.

Second, is to register with the FAA DroneZone for a Small UAS FAA Number. 

To ensure that ClovisRC Modeler Members are in compliance, the club has established a 45 day grace period for members to register their existing information or obtain both.

Links to the AMA TRUST and FAA Drone Zone can be found on the respective Club Join or Club Update Forms.

Link to – AMA TRUST Certificate Site

Link to – FAA UAS Registration Site

After the 45 day grace period and to respectfully show the FAA we are executing due diligence to ensure compliance and protect our FRIA Status, Members not yet in compliance with either the TRUST or FAA Registration, will be placed in a NOFLY Status.

Your assistance in sustaining our FRIA Field Status is most appreciated.
