Drone Safety and Regulations Overview

Session Description: Compared to just a few years ago, there’s been a lot of progress in the development of best practices for flying drones safely, as well as how to comply with regulations. This session will review the background of drone safety practices and describe the landscape of regulations from the local to the national, highlighting what you need to know to stay out of trouble. Recent and upcoming changes to FAA rules will also be described. Although this is not a Part-107 study session, resources for getting your remote pilot license will be shared.
