Preparing for Drones to Fly in Cities
Wednesday, October 30th, 2019
Drones, or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), are regulated for aircraft safety and flight operations under the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Many cities, municipalities, and states add their own regulations related to their areas of traditional authority. Traditional city and state authorities include:
- planning and zoning for land-use,
- determining take-off and landing locations for drones,
- law enforcement operations and community safety, and
- privacy policies and considerations.
