I am attending a forum today at The Ohio State University entitled Drones as Disruption - Who Regulates What? Looks to be very comprehensive, lasting all day. If anything significant comes up, I will try to summarize and post. We just got a hand out titled Overview of Current FAA sUAV Exemption Regime v. FAA Proposed Rules. It looks like a comparison chart listing Current Requirements and Proposed Rules. The first 2 items is as follows: Current Requirements Section 333 exemptions required in lieu of airworthiness certificate. Proposed Rules No airworthiness certificate required Current Requirements Pilot in Charge (PIC) must hold an airline transport, commercial, private, recreational or sport pilot certificate and a current FAA medical certificate or valid driver's license. Proposed Rules sUAV operator need only be at least 17 years of age and proficient in English and hold an unmanned aircraft operator certificate with a sUAV rating. (Certificate obtainable once every two years upon successful completion or writtten knowledge test at FAA-approved center.) The document goes on to describe proposed rules dealing with height, speed, distance, line of sight, etc. Panelists are varied and look to be very knowledgeable and to be heavy-hitters, including FAA and DJI. I will try to summarize any key takeaways, but initially, I think there is a very reasonable attitude being displayed here trying to come to grips with "drones" as it applies to those of us who are trying to make a few dollars flying and shooting. I am very encouraged about what I am hearing...will do more posts if I learn anything...the forum lasts all day.
