Drones, which are also referred to as unmanned aircraft system has become more well-known on the web nowadays. However, this new technology has showed new argument in regards to the rules and regulation about drones. Even though there have been completely new drone regulation and rule, that have been put into place, there are still debates that it is too strict for them and might be an obstruction into the business world.
According to the proposed framework of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), they’re going to focus more on the innovations. Drone regulations should not simply transfer the system and place it somewhere for the manned aviation. Instead, they must also develop something which is progressive, proportionate, risk based and many more.
On the other hand, FAA regulation together with the White House order has also given basic rules that will direct people who can fly drones around United States in any kind of condition while they try to avoid aviation problems as well as uncontrolled government surveillance.
The draft guidelines simply states that aerial photographers, real estate agents, police department, farmers and everyone were allowed if and only if it is for their work. The operators are required to pass their written exam for proficiency and get to register their drones. They have to pay out $200. However, they don’t have to acquire a license for being a pilot or even show off their flying skills.
This is one of the many most-awaited drone regulations. It’s been several years and FAA is been drawing these regulation up. They are looking forward to some revolution coming from the commercial sector of the industry. The propose drone regulation, is some ways, have some limitations too. Businesses can only fly drone during day light. It’s important that drones are observable on the eyesight of the operator. Mini drones or any kinds of drones are only able to fly not more than 100 miles per hour and must keep below 500 feet of altitude to prevent collision with the other kinds of aircraft. They’re also not allowed to fly over on bystanders that aren’t involved with their operation.
In addition to this, companies as well as other business firms do not allow fly drone on long distances. Of course, it could definitely rule out Amazon.com, newspaper companies as well as pizza maker using drones as part of their delivery operation for their customers. But nonetheless, rules and regulation regarding with the drone technology is in the process of modification, so expect it to change on these coming year.
Compared to a regular aircraft, FAA doesn’t need drone operators or perhaps manufacturers to possess certification to allow them to prove that their drones are enough. It is not necessary though since these technology poses the least amount of risk in the entire airspace.
The above-mentioned drone regulations were only applicable into drone that only weighs 55 pounds and below. Rules as well as drone regulations for the larger drones are still being discussed by FAA. Most probably, it would take them more years to figure it out.
