Key Drone Restrictions In FAA And White House Proposals

February 17, 2015, Law360

Covington's Kurt Wimmer, Jack Schenendorf, and Stephen Kiehl have authored this article on drone restrictions announced in FAA and White House proposals:

"On Sunday, the Federal Aviation Administration and White House addressed the growing use of unmanned aircraft systems by the private sector and government." 

"The White House released a memorandum that imposes privacy restrictions on government use of UAS, and directs the National Telecommunications and Information Administration to work with the private sector to develop voluntary best practices for the commercial use of UAS."

"Both the FAA and NTIA proposals are in the very early stages, and likely will take at least a few years to finalize. But the final rules and guidelines that emerge from both agencies likely will set the boundaries for the commercial use of drones for years to come. Accordingly, it is important for any company that might be interested in using drones to carefully follow both proceedings, and provide comments that will help the agencies shape their final rules."
