Buzz. Buzz. Buzz. They’re all over the news and the internet. We’ve all seen them. Drones, quadcopters, UAVs – whatever you want to call them. They are here whether we like them or not. The Federal Aviation Administration defines them as unmanned aerial vehicles or unmanned aerial systems. They can be controlled similarly to model aircraft or can be programmed to fly independently using GPS technology.
Recreational users need to be mindful of the FAA regulations and the potential insurance risk. They must fly below 400 feet, be within sight and control, avoid populated areas and schools and are now banned from almost all national parks. The FAA has started a campaign to make sure recreational users are informed. If you would like more information, here is the link http://knowbeforeyoufly.org/
