The Drones Are Coming Are You Ready?

In the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112-95) (the Act), Congress mandated that the Department of Transportation, in consultation with other government partners and industry stakeholders, develop a comprehensive plan to safely accelerate the integration of civil UAS in the National Airspace System (NAS).


UAS law and registration help

As part of that effort the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a Rule document entitled “Clarification of Applicability of Aircraft Registration Requirements for Unmanned Aircraft Systems and Request for Information Regarding Electronic Registration”(“Clarification”) in Docket No. FAA-2015-4378 effective October 22, 2015. The stated purpose of this Rule document was to clarify the applicability of the statutory requirements regarding aircraft registration to UAS, including those operating as model aircraft. In addition, the DOT announces the formation of a UAS registration task force to explore and develop recommendations to streamline the registration process for UAS to ease the burden associated with the existing aircraft registration process.


The new registration rules for all UAS including model aircraft, will be a radical departure from prior regulation and enforcement of existing FAA rules. For a detailed suggestion as to the proper method of UAS registration, see the Kelly Law UAS Clarification Comments filed on behalf of NetMoby, Inc., which can be viewed here.

The mission of the Drone Law Blog of Robert E. Kelly, Esq. is to explore the federal and state regulatory environment concerning small UAS (which are more commonly known as “drones”) and provide analysis regarding the rules to be promulgated for the small UAS service. This blog will address the federal efforts to create new rules for small UAS and also address state legislation that tackles small UAS regulation. 

I am particularly interested in the interplay – if not conflict – between federal and local authorities as to who will have the final say on new rules regulating drones.
