“Balance between safety and ease of use is key. restrictions need to be limited to where they are actually needed. In today’s market of off the shelf aircraft, added cost of clubs or memberships is a blocker for many people who have already spent substantial income on the hobby. This could be a barrier to entry, and limit newness in many forms. Off the top of my head, school systems may decline programs around flight, budget conscious folks would simply pick a different hobby if costs are to high, global companies would drastically slow or even stop innovations. Limiting flight locations to club fields or approved areas only may eliminate almost all recreational and armature flying. People want to experience the hobby in stimulating environments, which is one of the major draws of flight. Flying over a grass field is not thrilling or exciting to a film maker or sightseer.”
