Unmanned Aircraft Systems – UAS/Drones

Drones, or unmanned aerial systems (UAS), represent the future for aviation in so many different ways, from their ability to create incredible aerial photography, to their potential to change the way packages are delivered, to functioning as reconnaissance aircraft in disaster areas deemed unsafe for humans. Of course, drones can also be just plain fun to fly too. Because owning even the tiniest drone may well represent the first time many of you have flown anything, it’s important to understand that once your drone leaves the ground, it’s entering airspace often occupied by other aircraft, not to mention other drones.

UAS/drone operators flying from locations – even your backyard – near an airport must pay special attention to the fact that their machines could pose a safety threat to nearby manned aircraft.

When you fly a drone, it is your responsibility to understand and abide by the rules.
