DOT/FAA RIN: 2120-AL43 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Repeal of Special Rule for Model Aircraft 

The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, section 349, Exception for Limited Recreational Operations of Unmanned Aircraft repealed section 336 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 and established specific self-enacting requirements for those former section 336 unmanned aircraft systems operators who are regulated under 14 CFR part 101, subpart E (14 CFR 101E). Therefore, the provisions in the 2018 Act supersede the provisions in 14 CFR 101E. FAA seeks to repeal 14 CFR 101E because the existence of both requirements is conflicting and misleading to UAS operators.
