Operating UAVs in US Airspace-The Legal Implications

Friday, August 29th 2014
Read More About:


The introduction of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or "drones,” into the U.S National Airspace System for commercial use raises a number of complex legal and policy issues. Understanding what is currently permitted is made more challenging by almost-daily reports of new court decisions, proposed regulations, possible executive orders and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approvals granted for certain restricted uses. This webinar will clarify the current status of UAVs in the United States and raise important future issues.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • The FAA's current policy directing the operation of UAVs for commercial purposes and the integration of UAVs within the National Airspace System
  • Privacy issues related to the commercial operation of UAVs
  • Proposed legislation that could impact commercial use of UAVs

NOTE: This is the first in a series relating to UAVs. In the coming months look for additional webinars on the opportunities, threats and responsibilities of UAVs in Higher Education and on student learning experiences in courses employing UAVs.
