In the United States, the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) rules and policies enable the use of drones and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in the national airspace in a safe manner.
The UAS landscape promises to continually evolve as technology and flight protocols expand on the types of flights that can be performed in a safe manner. DLA Piper’s new primer reviews the federal rules that govern the authorization of drones for commercial, recreational and government purposes. The primer also reviews rules governing how and when UAS flights are conducted in the national airspace. It should be noted that state and local laws may also have some applicability and should be considered prior to flying.
Should you have any questions on how these and future rules and policies may affect your unique flight requirements, the following DLA Piper professionals are available to discuss your needs.
