FAA announces new rules for flying drones Sunday

נשלח לפני
The Federal Aviation Administration will announce long awaited rules Sunday governing how Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, often called drones, will be legally allowed to fly in the United States for business purposes. Currently, all commercial remote controlled aircraft are banned, unless a specific, rare exception is obtained from the FAA and operators follow a lengthy list of rules. Only a handful of those exemptions have been granted since the first was awarded to energy giant BP and UAV… ( עוד...

FAA announces new rules for flying drones

Seems pretty lax to me. How about gotta be so many miles from an airport. Or xx miles away from the center line of a runway. You're telling me they can be at 500'AGL and go 99 mph and be near a passenger 777 on approach? I am surprised someone hasn't flown one on the beach in front of St Maarten crashing into an airliner...

The FAA proposal would allow drones weighing up to 55 pounds to fly within sight of their remote pilots during daylight hours. The aircraft must stay below 500 feet in the air and fly less than 100 mph.

People flying drones would need to be at least 17 years old, pass an aeronautics test and be vetted by the Transportation Security Administration, but a certificate wouldn't require the flight hours or medical rating of a private pilot's license.

FAA floats new rules for commercial drone use

In welcome news for businesses banking on the commercial potential of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has put forward a proposal for guidelines surrounding commercial drone use. The rules would clear the air for some applications of the technology, though would still leave certain big-name players, such as Amazon, in limbo.
As drone technology has advanced and its capabilities and popularity become harder to ignore, pressure has mounted on the FAA to reform aviation laws to better accommodate UAVs. Beginning last September, it responded by granting a series of waivers to select companies, as assessed on a case-by-case basis, allowing them to use drones as part of their operations.
