The Federal Aviation Administration at the United States Dept. of Transportation has made the announcement that a new set of rules & regulations for operating drones are being passed to open the gates to future package deliveries.
At the center of the new regulations, will be Remote Identification of drones, in addition to info pertaining to the location of the drones’ control stations with the goal of facilitating the full integration into the United States national airspace. These regulations will also permit drone operators of smaller drone models to hover over people at night provided they meet certain criteria.
Steve Dickson, an administrator for the FAA had this to say about the regulations: “The new rules make way for the further integration of drones into our airspace by addressing safety and security concerns,” he explained. “They get us closer to the day when we will more routinely see drone operations such as the delivery of packages.”
Elaine L. Chao, U.S. Secretary of Transportation followed up on Dickson’s statement with: “These final rules carefully address safety, security and privacy concerns while advancing opportunities for innovation and utilization of drone technology,”
