One thought on “Drone Law Today Q&A #2!

  1. I must say that this is a terrific article! I think it would be very interesting to also talk and hear your opinion about the future of all this regulation. I am predicting that with all this new regulation, the FAA is trying to simply clear out the skies of the private flyers and prepare it for commercial drones and quadcopters. FAA likes them more and I doubt that it will impose any strickt regulations agains commercial drones. And we know that many big companies are looking to enter the drone industry soon (for delivery and other purposes). So the future regulation will be (in my opinion) mostly restrictive for individuals, but no so restrictive for commercial flyers.
    The prospects for the future are also very interesting if you are in the quadcopter business as this will affect its future.
    The reason (at least I think so) that FAA does not like private flyers is the fear of losing control over the air space in the country.
