Start Preamble


Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


Revision of Advisory Circular 91-57.


On February 14, 2012, the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112-95), was issued which contains provisions in section 336 related to model aircraft operations. AC 91-57 contains provisions that are inconsistent with section 336 and therefore the Advisory Circular is being revised. The FAA refers model aircraft users to section 336 of Public Law 112-95 for information regarding model aircraft operations.


Effective date: September 10, 2015.
