New FAA Drone Regulations & Restrictions

by Fred Jorgensen

New rules set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), taking effect in August, open the sky to the commercial use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), and legislate the current guidelines for personal use. The additional rules for commercial use are: a pilot registration system and protocol to waive certain FAA restrictions. The waiver system is the most significant new rule. With the proper waivers, companies can now legally provide customers with a wide variety of UAS based services.
