  • Busting Myths about the FAA and Unmanned Aircraft
    operations are a gray area in FAA regulations Fact There are no shades of gray in FAA regulations Anyone who wants to fly an aircraft manned or unmanned in U S airspace needs some level of FAA approval Private sector civil users can obtain an experimental airworthiness certificate to conduct research and development training and flight demonstrations Commercial UAS operations are limited and require the operator to have certified aircraft and pilots as well as operating approval To date only two UAS models the Scan Eagle and Aerovironment s Puma have been certified and they can only fly in the Arctic Public entities federal state and local governments and public universities may apply for a Certificate of Waiver or Authorization COA The FAA reviews and approves UAS operations over densely populated areas on a case by case basis Flying model aircraft solely for hobby or recreational reasons does not require FAA approval However hobbyists are advised to operate their aircraft in accordance with the agency s model aircraft guidelines see Advisory Circular 91 57 In the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 Public Law 112 95 Sec 336 Congress exempted model aircraft from new rules or regulations provided the aircraft are operated in accordance with a community based set of safety guidelines and within the programming of a nationwide community based organization The FAA and the Academy of Model Aeronautics recently signed a first ever agreement that formalizes a working relationship and establishes a partnership for advancing safe model UAS operations This agreement also lays the ground work for enacting the model aircraft provisions of Public Law 112 95 Sec 336 Modelers operating under the provisions of P L 112 95 Sec 336 must comply with the safety guidelines of a nationwide community based organization Myth 4 There are too many commercial UAS operations for the FAA to stop Fact The FAA has to prioritize its safety responsibilities but the agency is monitoring UAS operations closely Many times the FAA learns about suspected commercial UAS operations via a complaint from the public or other businesses The agency occasionally discovers such operations through the news media or postings on internet sites When the FAA discovers apparent unauthorized UAS operations the agency has a number of enforcement tools available to address these operations including a verbal warning a warning letter and an order to stop the operation Myth 5 Commercial UAS operations will be OK after September 30 2015 Fact In the 2012 FAA reauthorization legislation Congress told the FAA to come up with a plan for safe integration of UAS by September 30 2015 Safe integration will be incremental The agency is still developing regulations policies and standards that will cover a wide variety of UAS users and expects to publish a proposed rule for small UAS under about 55 pounds later this year That proposed rule will likely include provisions for commercial operations Myth 6 The FAA is lagging behind other countries in approving commercial drones Fact This comparison
