Frank -

Can't wait to hear what the "currency" and "medical" requirements accompanying the proposed license requirements will be.....

Meanwhile, it seems like every law firm in any tech area and nearly all of the traditional aviation law firms have announced a "drone practice". It will be interesting to see how much evolves into client consulting - i.e. teaching and education on legal compliance - and how much evolves into regulatory enforcement defense or criminal defense work.....<g>

Well, I think this could be a sure-fire way around the regs. I'd like to see the FAA claim they can regulate this. <bg>

I think I understand the desire for licensing - you have to have something you can revoke if they misbehave.

Having some basic knowledge of flight wouldn't be a bad idea. But would flying a dji require a helicopter license or just a private pilot license?

Me too. My money is on the FAA. Considering that the full Board and the Courts have sided with the FAA recently, and that the NTSB and Courts almost always side with the FAA on airspace matters, I am guessing that this one will go, at least in part, the FAA's way. But then what do I know....

Oh, I don't know. I can see it now:

Falconers, if you add cameras, we've got ya !!!
You can't fly here or there if it might endanger aircraft operations at airports.

I have it on good authority the falcon was only sharing expenses pro-rata.

Which reminds me of another question: Since they are now recognized as aircraft, don't small UASs have the same right to operate at airports as manned aircraft?
