  • Drone Federalism Act!?!?

    Has anyone seen this? It looks like some congressperson is proposing a law that would allow States and Local Governments the ability to control airspace up to 200ft.

    This would presumably allow governments the ability to restrict, prohibit, or tax any launches from or flights through their airspace!

    Everyone needs to call their Representatives/Senator ASAP!

    It appears as though Senator Lee (R-Utah) ended up not submitting this rule for consideration last night as part of the budget discussions, so it looks as though this issue is (temporarily) squashed.

    We should remain vigilant though and keep an eye out for legislators looking to make uninformed or malicious attempts to strip us of our rights to access the NAS as hobbyists or professional UAS pilots!

    Thanks for bringing this up!
