  1. 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: 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
  2. Minnesota Congressman Jason Lewis (R-MN-02) introduced the Drone Innovation Act, H.R. 2930 joined by Representatives Brownley (D-CA-26), Rokita (R-IN-04), and Garamendi (D-CA-03): H.R. 2930 addresses civil UAS flying up to 200 feet above ground level within a state, local, or tribal government’s jurisdiction. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) retains control over the national airspace. The bill directs the Secretary of Transportation to work with state and local officials to develop a framework for local operation, around a set of principles Lewis outlines to encourage innovation and protect privacy. The bill also establishes a pilot program for federal partnerships to assess best practices. You can read the full text of the bill here: Flying Magazine also has a decent write up on this new bill:
  3. Hi 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:
  4. It's been a long time coming, but we're happy to announce that we've received our FAA Section 333 exemption. Our team patiently waited 6 months and 2 days for our Section 333 Exemption (and Blanket COA) from the FAA. We received it and are now cleared to operate commercially! Is it a perfect process? No. Is it the only door the FAA has given us to comply here in the US? Yep, sure is. While I’m proud to be one of 4000 companies who have successfully navigate this process, I’ll be even more proud when cleaner sUAS rules are put into place." In case you're interested in the guidelines I need to follow to comply with the Exemption and COA requirements, attached are links to my approved paperwork.

  5. Hi folks! I'm doing a "soft launch" of a 5-minute industry survey that I'll be sending out to the masses over the next several days: Would appreciate your responses! Individual results are kept anonymous, but the aggregate survey data will be shared with everyone by May 2016.
