FAA Releases Two Final Rules to Advance Drone Integration
Public Policy & Regulation attorneys Joel Roberson, Anita Mosner, Marina O'Brien and Ben Slocum co-authored an article analyzing two Final Rules released by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that aim to accelerate the integration of unmanned aircraft systems (drones) into the national airspace system. The first Final Rule creates a regulatory framework for the remote identification of drones, establishing a standard for them to broadcast unique identifiers accessible by law enforcement and the public. The second Final Rule allows drones to be flown over people, at night and over moving vehicles. In their article, the authors outline each new rule and relevant compliance standards.
