Q&A #9 – State Drone Law & Public UAS

Logo 600 x 600Welcome back to another Drone Law Today Q&A! Today we’re talking about Arizona’s proposed drone law, which may stop local governments from banning drone flights. We also talk about what a “public” aircraft is, how drones as “public aircraft” can operate with a COA (without a Section 333 Exemption), and how drone operators can find out if their operations are allowed in a particular area.

      Basic rule is that if you’re “inside,” the FAA doesn’t care what you do. You may need to be licensed by the FCC if your drone tech requires it – check the paperwork that comes with your drone to find out (many “fpv racing” models require some type of FCC license).
