New FAA Drone Rules
The FAA has Published new Drone Rules (Part 107); effective August 2016, 60 days after they apprear in the Federal Register, likely this week.
Many of the drone pilots currently doing commercial work have been working with varying degrees of rule compliance when operating under the previous rules (Part 333). These rules were created by bureaucrats with similar mindsets to those who approve $2,000+ to purchase ordinary toilets using your and my taxpayer dollars (personal opinion, but I have lots of company).
The new rules are now sane and are rightly-focused on safety-in-the-skies and not at making commercial drone aerial work all-but-impossible on time and monetary budgets available to a typical client.
