RID And The OMB

Time to get your EO 12866 meeting scheduled up with the OMB and ask your
questions about Remote Identification Rulemaking. It would appear that DJI has
something scheduled up, how about you?

Ho, Ho, Ho, I’m hearing you might even be getting all of this specialness by
Christmas. If not, the FAA will throw the old OMB under the sleigh again. Maybe you
trusting sorts will just be happy to pay up and pipe down, but that’s not how I roll.

I’ve got a few questions like, are we still using the DJI Economic Impact Report
numbers and Aeroscope concept that 70 to 93% (even though they only have 70%
of the market) of the existing drones will be able to meet the new RID requirements
with an SMS push?

How much will it cost for the outliers to comply?

Some of the unwashed masses want to know about privacy, and when will all
aircraft in the NAS be getting RID; it is about an equivalent level of safety, right?
Links if you want your own meeting –

Step 1: Go to https://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eo/neweomeeting

Step 2: Enter in the RIN above and schedule a meeting to let the OMB know how this
will kill business, ruin model recreation, cause all sorts of privacy issues, is going to
be extremely expensive, etc.

It’s a public record to see who speaks. The information presented is also public. DJI,
AUVSI, etc. are already scheduled to speak.
Here are the meetings scheduled:

If you don’t have time for a meeting, email your questions, to Gary or me, and we’ll
see what we can do to get them answered before this potential catastrophe becomes
the rule.
