The Federal Aviation Administration’s Proposed Rule: Operation and Certification of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Open Access

This Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposal would allow small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to operate in the National Airspace System (NAS) pursuant to specific limitations and standards, which address small UAS operation, operator certification, and registration. Small UAS currently may not operate for non-recreational (i.e. commercial) purposes in the NAS. By allowing commercial small UAS to operate, the FAA expects to enable businesses to use small UAS to improve the efficiency of existing enterprises. Although the FAA foresees “potential societally beneficial applications of small UAS,” it intends to integrate them in a way that poses minimal public risk.
