Hi all, we're doing our best to track local drone laws by U.S. state and by country and wanted to share the link here to make it easy for anyone to find / comment on laws we might be missing: https://uavcoach.com/drone-laws/ Hat tip to power-member @Steve Bennett for the original forum post back in 2017 or so that got me thinking about doing our own directory of local drone laws instead of relying on, let's just say more sub-par sources of information
Greetings from Chico, California. I am a newbie in the Drone industry. I am a licensed private investigator http://www.jedgarpi.com . My purpose for Drone training is to utilize the Drone in investigations, specifically in surveillance, activity checks, and insurance claims investigation.
For those who have not seen this yet. The fine was negotiated but bear in mind it was sort of a barter deal. They traded off making PSA's. Folks don't realize that the NYC area is HIGHLY controlled airspace and FAA has a very large staff in the area as well. Know your airspace! For Immediate Release January 17, 2017 Contact: Laura Brown (email@example.com) / Les Dorr (firstname.lastname@example.org) Phone: 202-359-3680 or 202-267-3461 WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration today announced a comprehensive settlement agreement with SkyPan International, Inc., of Chicago. The agreement resolves enforcement cases that alleged the company operated unmanned aircraft (UAS) in congested airspace over New York City and Chicago, and violated airspace regulations and aircraft operating rules. Under the terms of the agreement, SkyPan will pay a $200,000 civil penalty. The company also agrees to pay an additional $150,000 if it violates Federal Aviation Regulations in the next year, and $150,000 more if it fails to comply with the terms of the settlement agreement. SkyPan also agrees to work with the FAA to release three public service announcements in the next 12 months to support the FAA’s public outreach campaigns that encourage drone operators to learn and comply with UAS regulations. The agreement settles enforcement cases involving a $1.9 million civil penalty that the FAA proposed against SkyPan International, Inc. of Chicago in October 2015. It is the largest civil penalty the agency has proposed against a UAS operator. SkyPan Press Release
Alan Perlman posted a topic in Community UpdatesHi everyone! Sharing results from a recent study we conducted on U.S. drone regulations. I know a lot of you took part, and I wanted to personally thank you for your engagement. I was blown away with how many responses we got and think the insights from the survey are pretty telling of where we're at right now. Looking forward to your comments: http://uavcoach.com/survey
