New proposed FAA regulations coming down the pipe10735

lilnitsch private msg quote post Address this user
Just something for US Drone Pilots to be aware of with the new proposed changes coming down the pipe. Commenting on the new proposed changes does not open until December 31st. While changes will likely take a couple of years to go into full effect this is something to be aware of moving forward

If you fly a drone or think you ever will, watch this video by Russ at 51 Drones:


This is an excellent video outlining the essential elements of the 300+ page FAA proposal for Remote ID, its proposed rules and timetable.

Most important, January 1 to March 1, 2020 is the window for submission of citizen comments to the FAA. Eighteen months hence the FAA will be issuing the actual rules for Remote ID which will, in time, become mandatory for all drones in the U.S. Yes, the door is left open to regulate EVEN drones under 250grams like the latest tiny Mavic.

There are industries (think Amazon, UPS, police and fire) which have much more at stake here than real estate photographers, however it is still essential that we add our voices collectively to this discussion.

At the recent UAV Expo Americas in Las Vegas I personally spoke with Angela H. Stubblefield, Deputy Associate Administrator of the FAA. She understands the colliding interests of municipalities like Beverly Hills, CA which want full jurisdiction over, and a complete “no-fly” zone below 400’, for citizen privacy. She also understood that this directly conflicts with both the responsible interests of real estate agents and drone photographers, as well as the FAA’s desire to maintain legal control over “everything from the grass up” nationwide, as she put it.

This is a huge issue, and will absolutely affect us, so begin drafting your letters to go to the FAA between January 1st and about March 1. The FAA needs to hear from us. Certainly they are already hearing from Amazon which would benefit from the complete removal of all other drones in low airspace.

The above video includes YouTuber comments from mostly hobbyists who lean to the “nobody is takin’ away my drones (or guns?)” but the speaker, Russ, is very good, balanced, and informative. Your few minutes listening to his analysis will be worth it.

Cars and trucks are all registered in the U.S., so are manned aircraft. Drones are soon to be as well so accept this and play a role in how it happens.

@Home3D Agreed. It will be interesting to see what all shakes out of the new rules & regulations. Where I live cellular service isn't always a given. So, shooting some of these large remote properties may become interesting moving forwards as the new rules and regulations covers all remote aircraft so even the old tethered blimp aerial photography is technically covered here
