New rulings for drone and drone pilots

| No Comments

In short - some really well thought out and others? Really stupid and they suck. From Digital Photography Review:

Opinion: New rules proposed by the FAA are a threat to drone pilots – including photographers
The FAA is proposing new rules related to flying drones in the US, and if you fly drones – including for photography – these rules WILL affect you. In this article, I'll look at the implications of the proposed rule changes and how you can comment on them before the FAA makes them final.

The day after Christmas, the drone industry was finally gifted the long-awaited Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for the Remote Identification of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones), and what the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) presented was a shock to many commercial and recreational remote pilots, alike. The government agency completely ignored recommendations from all 74 industry stakeholders that make up the Aviation Rulemaking Commitee (ARC), which is concerning.

The drone industry needs Remote ID, the concept that every drone should have a digital license plate, to move forward. Having a uniform system in place to identify unmanned aerial vehicles in national airspace is imperative for the safe operation of every aircraft sharing the skies. It will also enable more complex operations including flights at night, over people, and beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). Remote ID is a step in the right direction but, unfortunately, the FAA has proposed costly, privacy-violating rules that will at first stifle, and then eventually crush, the potential of a burgeoning industry.

I'm not going to summarize every section of the 87-page (the original was 319) document in one article as it goes far beyond the scope of what most DPReview readers want to digest. Instead, I'll cover some of the main points of concern and, finally, offer suggestions and resources for leaving an effective comment for the FAA if you're one of the nearly 1.2 million registered drone users in the U.S. If you're prepared to make your voice heard, comment HERE.

Much more at the site.

I am a registered drone operator - love it. Plan to make my comment heard. Parts of these rulings are needed and are well thought out. Other parts come from the foetid swamp of a bureaucrats mind - specifically, a bureaucrat whose last contact with the real world was in grade school. Not so good and needs to be stomped to the ground so they never try that crap again.
