Fighting to Win

Logo 600 x 600Drone Law Nation, today’s episode is about fighting to win. Our guest today is David Daniel, the Executive Director of the UAS Association of Florida.

The mission of the UAS Association of Florida is to encourage the growth of the drone industry in Florida by fighting to prevent unnecessary and over-burdensome regulations.

And you know how they do that? Through professional lobbying.

We’ve talked before about the importance of professional lobbying to the drone industry. It is especially critical at the state level, as states are doing all sorts of things that may hinder the growth potential for drones.

The question before us is whether we want to be pitchers who control the game, or hitters who only react?

Professional lobbying means controlling the game. Pushing the agenda and changing the world by telling our own story.

If our story isn’t told by us, then who will tell it? If the grassroots base of the drone industry does not speak up, then the people controlling the narrative are those that know the least about it.

It’s time to speak up. It’s time to be heard. It’s time to join up and fight like mad for the things we believe in.

You want a drone industry that works?

Then saddle up.

Let’s do this thing.

Together.

Announcing the State Drone Law Book!

cropped-logo-2048px.jpgDrone Law Nation, you heard it here first: the Ausley McMullen Law Firm has created the first ever book addressing the State Drone Laws in place around the United States.

Sign up for our email list at www.dronelawtoday.com/book to get your copy of State Drone Law: State Laws and Regulations on Unmanned Aircraft Systems!

Joining me to announce the book is Richard Doran, the former Attorney General of Florida and my mentor in all things “drone law.”

Richard and I have worked together for years in advising Government entities and private companies on issues related to drone law.

The State Drone Law Book is the culmination of years of effort to understand the interaction between federal and state law on the drone industry. We worked this summer to compile the statutes and regulations impacting drones all across the country, and to translate that information in an easy-to-understand book.

This edition, officially announced to the Drone Law Today Email List on December 30, 2016, is our “first shot” at addressing these issues in a comprehensive way. We intend to update this book annually, and to expand it to discuss the cases on drones that are winding their way through the courts.

Thank you once again for being part of the Drone Revolution.

Let’s work together to make the future awesome.
