The FAA recently released their proposals for commercial drone regulation. Once put in place, these laws would dictate how corporations can use drones.
The proposed regulations would limit drone activity to the operator’s line of sight. Drones would have to yield to anyone else in the airspace, and would not be allowed to fly directly over people on the ground unless they were involved in the drone’s operation. Operators would require licenses.
While these regulations would let companies use drones for stunts, ads, etc., they would curtail plans for a drone delivery service.
Comments are welcome at regulations.gov.
