As a member of the model aviation community I fully support the efforts of the Alleghany Highlands Economic Development Corporation to obtain funding to create several “drone friendly” venues in the Alleghany Highlands. Having permanent, and protected, flying fields in communities is continuing a tradition started by the Academy of Model Aeronautics 80 years ago.
I would certainly frequent the flying fields proposed for the Alleghany highlands, for both sanctioned races, and fun fly events. With thousands of pilots in the region, this will be a benefit to both the region and the citizens.
