|After an 18-month delay, the FAA released a draft of the new rule for remote identification of unmanned aircraft, providing the industry with a comprehensive roadmap for the full implementation of the Remote ID system.
Fortunately, you don’t have to wade through the 300-page draft because the Fox Rothschild Aviation team has done that for you!
Join Fox Rothschild’s Aviation Practice Group for a complimentary 90-minute webinar on the Remote ID Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.
It’s a question asked by kids (and backseat drivers) everywhere. In the case of the remote identification of drones, the driver is the FAA, and the Congress, as always, is in the back seat.

As most readers know, the lack of a standard for the remote identification of unmanned aircraft has held up progress in a number of areas critical for integration of UAS into the national airspace system. Rules for flight over people and in heavily congested areas, protection of critical infrastructure, beyond visual line of sight operations and unmanned traffic management, and effective counter-drone systems all require a remote ID solution. … Read More

The United States is home to 1.3 million registered drones. The Department of Homeland Security cannot quantify the number that are unregistered, but more than 7 million drones are expected to have been sold in the U.S. by 2020. As the number of drones increases, so does the likelihood that a drone will be used in a terrorist attack or other criminal activity.… Read More
Are you trying to develop cutting edge technology for unmanned aircraft? Did you miss out on the FAA’s Pathfinder Program? Was your proposal for the FAA’s Public/Private Partnership initiative passed over? Then today may be your lucky day.… Read More
While there will always be technological developments in the aviation industry, it is for the most part, a mature industry. On the other hand, the drone industry, measured against fixed wing and rotorcraft, is probably in the range of 20 percent mature. While drones have, in the defense world, been in use for decades, it’s only been in the last few years that drone technology has entered the commercial world.… Read More

In just a few short years, the operation of unmanned aircraft has gone from a rarity to big business. According to the FAA’s newly released Aerospace Forecast, the total number of commercial UAS in the United States is expected to triple by 2023. Much of this growth is expected to come from a dramatic increase in the number of businesses offering “drones as a service.”… Read More
The FAA started 2019 off in a big way, releasing two major UAS rulemakings on the same day. The public notice and comment period for both rules is now closed, and it is interesting to see what the public thinks of these proposals. … Read More
