FAA proposes rules to regulate drone use

>>> THE SKIES ARE ABOUT TO GET A LOT FRIENDLIER FOR DRONES THE FAA SAYS IT IS GETTING READY TO GREEN LIGHT COMMERCIAL USE OF THE UNMANNED FLYING MACHINES OVER THE UNITED STATES

YOU MIGHT THINK, WELL, AREN'T THEY ALREADY LEGAL? NOT EXACTLY NOT FOR COMMERCIAL USE BUT UNDER A PROPOSED RULE, THE FAA WOULD ALLOW BUSINESSES TO FLY DRONES WITHOUT LIMITATIONS — WITH LIMITATIONS, I SHOULD SAY A LOT OF THEM HAVE TO BE LESS THAN 55 POUNDS THEY HAVE TO STAY IN THE LINE OF SIGHT OF THE OPERATOR

MEANING IF YOU SET IT OFF ON FLIGHT, YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO SEE IT THE ENTIRE TIME THEY CAN ONLY BE USED DURING DAYLIGHT THEY CAN'T FLY FASTER THAN 100 MILES PER HOUR AND THEY CAN'T FLY HIGHER THAN 500 FEET SOME ARE HAPPY THAT THE FEDS ARE FINALLY WILLING TO LET BUSINESSES USE THESE DRONES, BUT UNDER THE PLAN, IT RULES OUT A LOT OF THINGS, LIKE GETTING PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING, LIKE PIZZA, BEER, DELIVERED THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE COMMERCIALS ABOUT A COMPANY DELIVERING BEER VIA DRONE

THAT'S NOT GOING TO BE LEGAL IF THESE RULES GET APPROVED HERE WITH ME TO DISCUSS ALL OF THIS, PHOTOGRAPHER WE'VE HEARD COMPANIES LIKE AMAZON REALLY UNHAPPY ABOUT THIS BECAUSE AS WE KNOW, PART OF THEIR BUSINESS PLAN IS TO DELIVER SMALL ITEMS VIA DRONE DO YOU THINK THIS IS A GOOD CALL BY THE FAA TO SAY WE'RE GOING TO PUT LIMITS ON THIS AND WE'RE BEGINNING TO MAKE IT LEGAL? >> ABSOLUTELY

I THINK THAT WHAT THE FAA HAS DONE IN ISSUING THE MPRM YESTERDAY IS TAKE SEVERAL GIANT LEAPS IN ALLOWING THE USE OF SMALL — >> A FEW THINGS? >> OF THESE GUYS, RIGHT AND LARGER 55 POUNDS IS ACTUALLY QUITE HEAVY MOST PEOPLE IN THE COMMERCIAL DIRECTED MODE ARE LOOKING AT DRONES THAT MAYBE WEIGH LESS THAN 20 POUNDS TOPS >> READING THROUGH THE PROPOSED RULES, YOU HAVE TO HAVE YOUR EYE ON IT THE ENTIRE TIME

SO THAT REALLY COMPLETELY TAKES OFF THE BOARD DELIVERY BY DRONE >> IT DOES FOR THE MOMENT I THINK WHAT REALLY STRUCK ME WAS JUST HOW ITERATIVE THE FAA IS SAYING THEY WILL BE AND HOW WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE STUCK WITH THIS FOR THEN YEARS, WE'RE GOING TO BE CONSTANTLY REVISITING JUST THE MERE MENTION OF THAT THERE WAS TALK OF MEETING AIRCRAFT CERTIFICATION OR AIRCRAFT PARTS LIST AND TEST FLIGHTS

AND THEY BACKED AWAY FROM THAT, UNDERSTANDING THAT IN THE TIME THAT IT TAKES FOR AN AIRCRAFT TO BECOME CERTIFIED, THE TECHNOLOGY COULD CHANGE THREE TIMES >> I WONDER IF YOU THINK — BECAUSE AMAZON HAS COME OUT AND SAID THEY'RE GOING TO — THEY WANT TO SEE FINAL RULES AND THEY WANT TO PUSH FORWARD WITH WHAT'S CALLED PRIME AIR, THIS DELIVERY THE THINKING IS, IF IT'S NOT ALLOWED IN THE UNITED STATES, THEY'RE GOING TO DO IT IN OTHER COUNTRIES I JUST WONDER IF YOU THINK REGULATION LIKE THIS SIGHTYMIES EXPEDIENCY >> I THINK IT'S A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD IN A SENSE

I THINK YOU WANT TO ENCOURAGE THE INDUSTRY, AND AT THE SAME TIME, THE FAA IS TASKED WITH KEEPING THE AIR SPACE SAFE I THINK THIS DOES GO A LONG WAY WE HAVE A 60-DAY PERIOD TO RESPOND, AS ANYBODY CAN AND THE IDEA FOR US AT THIS POINT WOULD BE TO TRY AND PUSH MORE OF A BEYOND LINE OF SIGHT OR WHAT PEOPLE ARE CALLING BOLS SO BOLS IMPLIES PERHAPS USING AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS LIKE GPS

I WOULD ARGUE THAT THE AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS THAT REQUIRE BEYOND LINE OF SIGHT FLIGHT AND GPS WAKE POINT NAVIGATION ARE MULTIPLE SAFER THAN ACTUAL HUMAN INPUT >> AND I'D BE REMISS NOT TO NOTE THAT IN NOVEMBER, A DRONE CAME WITHIN 20 FEET OF STRIKING A PLANE NEAR OKLAHOMA CITY >> REPORTED >> OKAY MAYBE YOU DON'T BUY IT

REPORTEDLY WE HAD ONE LAND ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN SO THERE IS A NEED HERE FOR REGULATION IT'S REALLY CLEAR, RIGHT? >> THERE IS NO DENYING THAT REGULATION IS DESIRED I MEAN, FROM WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY, THIS IS WHAT WE'VE REALLY BEEN LOOKING FOR

WE WANT RULES OF THE ROAD WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO ADHERE TO RULES OF THE ROAD IF IT REQUIRES A CERTAIN TEST, CERTIFICATION, WE REALLY ARE ALL FOR IT BUT AT LEAST LET US KNOW WHAT WE NEED TO DO AND THAT'S WHAT WE'VE COME TO RIGHT ABOUT NOW THERE'S NO AMOUNT OF — JUST TALKING ABOUT THE WHOUCITE HOUS

THERE'S NO AMOUNT OF PROGRAMS THAT WILL PREVENT STUPID >> THAT'S MY QUESTIONS OF THE DAY I LOVE THAT ONE WE HAVE TO GO
