The FAA is set to release its drone rules this week.
The rules, expected to be the most extensive drone regulations in decades, will cover everything from the size and weight of drones to their flight restrictions.
The FAA says the rules will allow unmanned aircraft systems to be used for research, safety testing and research and development purposes, while the rules also allow for the deployment of drones in certain situations such as surveying, mapping and mapping operations.
The regulations also define the requirements for drones to carry out certain activities.
In addition to drone parts, the rules allow manufacturers to list all the parts they need to make the drone.
The list will have to include at least two types of parts, but could include anything from sensors to cameras to battery packs.
“If you want to do something like this, the FAA will require you to have a specific list of those items, and they will need to be available for inspection by the inspector general,” said John B. Fritsch, a drone policy analyst with the libertarian Cato Institute.
Fifty states already have drone regulations.
The Federal Aviation Administration is set on enforcing the rules, which go into effect in March 2020.FAA rules have a lot of loopholes.
A manufacturer can request exemptions if the product is made in a way that the FAA doesn’t think is likely to cause injury to someone, but if the FAA finds there are no other ways for the drone to fly the drone will have no legal authority to fly.
The agency also has the authority to issue citations to drone manufacturers.
There’s also no set timeline for when drones will be allowed to fly, though Fritch said it could be a few years from now.
It’s also unclear how many of the FAA’s drone rules will be made public.
The National Transportation Safety Board is currently investigating the incident that killed five people in the southern United States.
