The agency responsible for regulating aviation in the USA, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), has recently published a new amendment to the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018. These new US drone laws are carried out following its claim by the US Congress beforehand. It is necessary because of the exponential growth that is being experienced by the industrial drones sector, as well as recreationally.
Thus, the FAA, the Office of the Secretary of Transportation (OST) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) of the USA, have just made public the new law related to “Operation and certification of small unmanned aerial systems”.
With this, the legislation is published to allow the operation of small unmanned aircraft, or what is the same, the use of drones in US airspace. Changes occur both in the operation of the drones as well as in the certification of the pilots in addition to putting a greater emphasis on protecting the security of airspace in the USA.
