FAA Unveils Drone Rules: Autonomy Is In, Drone Delivery Is Out

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has recently announced the long-awaited Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for small unmanned aircraft systems, governing the operation of drones under 55 pounds (25 kilograms). Many observers had worried that the FAA would attempt to over-regulate, proposing requirements like airworthiness certificates for drones and pilot’s licenses for drone operators and other restrictions that would make it a lot harder for businesses to use drones. But although there are some sticking points that will surely generate more debate, the proposed rules seem surprisingly reasonable. What do you think?
