Drone pilots should be aware. New regulations will be in place for operating commercial drones, starting Monday.
The Federal Aviation Administration are putting in to effect new rules, that will require commercial drone operators to have a manned aircraft pilots license. The new rules are known as part 107 of the Federal Aviation Regulations. Drones will also have to stay more than 400 feet from people, buildings, and vehicles.
"So hobbyists, nothing really changes, they still get to operate free of getting a license, they still have to register thier drone, and they still have to abide by all drone regulations, such as where they can and cannot operate," summarized Cody Witzany, Project Manager of Northern Drone WorX.
Northern Drone WorX a commercial drone operator based out of Duluth offers ground courses to teach new drone pilots about airspace, safety, and drone regulations. The Next class will be held on September 12th.
