US Introduces New Laws For Commercially-Run Drones

The new laws promise more freedom

The US government has unveiled new laws that pave the way for more freedom for commercially-run drones. In a hope to open up opportunities for new businesses inspecting crops or taking aerial photography, the regulations also open the door for faster ecommerce delivery. When Amazon introduced drones to its delivery system last year, they were met with a strict set of rules to keep people on the ground safe. President Obama said that “We are in the early days of an aviation revolution that will change the way we do business”, but added it was still important to keep people safe. However, the Federal Aviation Administration said that ecommerce deliveries would require a different set of regulations, but said that such activities would be permitted under a waiver program, whist promising to make the process as streamlined as possible.
