Drone Aircraft and the FAA

Carlton Fields aviation attorney Edward Page was a guest on the KALW Local Public Radio program, “Drone Aircraft and the FAA,” discussing how the Federal Aviation Administration’s airspace traffic and safety requirements apply to drones.

The program points out that drones, specifically defined as piloted off-vehicles under remote control, have recently exploded in popularity for both commercial operators and consumer hobbyists.

Due to their rise in use, the FAA and other state bodies have established federal and state aircraft regulations that relate specifically to drones, such as requiring registration and insurance coverage.

Page, who is also a commercial pilot and flight instructor, cautions that it is also important to learn about the airspaces where drones are and aren’t able to be flown to avoid any repercussions from governments, local law enforcement, insurance companies, and private citizens.

Listen to the program.
