Screenshots Of Leaked FAA Drone Rule Summary Still Popping Up Online
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is set to announce a new set of rules and regulations governing the use of drones for business purposes.
While the FAA hasn't officially released any new laws and regulations yet, a screenshot of leaked rules has popped up online. Drone Law Journal obtained a copy of the May 2016 version of the FAA's "Summary of Major Provisions Under 14 CFR 107," which offers a glimpse at what rules may be introduced.
Some of the proposed rules include:
- Setting a minimum age of 16 for a drone user
- Drones cannot fly higher than 400 feet above ground level
- There is a requirement for drone users to read, speak, write and understand the English language
- Drone users need to take and pass an online test
According to Forbes, the FAA's new rules could come out as soon as Tuesday. It is also expected that the rules will eliminate many of the expensive requirements imposed on commercial drone operators.
