Unmanned Aircraft Systems

The Unmanned Aircraft Systems industry (sometimes referred to as “drones”) is fast growing and at the cusp of technological innovation. Media companies and others are eagerly looking for new and innovative ways to incorporate UASs into their operations.

The Federal government, as well as state and local governments, are working to respond to the rising number of UASs in the sky and the many possible uses they may have – creating a rapidly evolving regulatory environment which must be navigated to avoid fines or other liabilities.
Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, PLC attorneys assist clients in:

  • Understanding the applicability of federal, state, and local laws on UAS operations;
  • Determining how to fly UASs safely and legally given those federal, state and local laws, especially the FAA’s regulatory structure;
  • Filing applications with the FAA to obtain Section 333 exemptions;
  • Creating and adhering to privacy best practices; and
  • Monitoring regulatory and legislative changes and advocating on behalf of clients to help shape the future of the industry.
