2:00pm (ET) to 3:00pm (ET)
Geospatial professionals and educators are seeing unmanned aircraft technology take off- literally. The technology is here and the needs are great, but one of the major barriers to entry is the legal aspects for drones. The FAA considers drones to be aircraft; thus, they are subject to the Federal Aviation Regulations. This causes many individuals to ask questions.
In this presentation, the presenter will discuss: (1) the different types of aircraft and what is legally required for each to fly, (2) the operational problems that public and commercial drone operations have under the Federal Aviation Regulations, (3) legal issues from a state and local level that can affect your operations, (4) what the future holds, and (5) what you can now do to successfully position yourself for the future.
