FAA Reminds Airports Not to Use Their Own Counter-UAS—Again

Recommended Posts

As drones become more and more commonplace, some authorities have taken to employing their own counter-UAS measures—and apparently airports are on the list, since the FAA recently issued a statement reminding them not to use their own CUAS.

Read today's article to learn more about the statement, and for some discussion of the ongoing tension between local and federal authorities around how drones are regulated.

How do you think things will shake out with federal and local drone laws over the next few years? Chime in on this thread to share your thoughts and opinions.

I was notified by the University of Michigan last summer that we are not allowed to fly in airspace around U of M Campus.
This included if we were taking off and landing on private property. The Press Release link you attached to your email concerning cities and municipalities having their own flight rules confirms my understanding.
What are your thoughts? Can a school impose flight restrictions for drones? U of M currently BANS all drone flights not tethered or in their "drone operations" area.
