  1. This was due to happen

    The laws will increase and folks can blame the FAA for “being slow.”

    Laws, lawyers, and legislation are picking and soon (2-5 yrs) one can bet there will be airmanship requirements that will be mandated by the FAA….the laws will pressure that

    Agencies desiring UAS technology ought NOT be exempt from those up n coming FAA requirements

    Bet on the FAA acting shortly……it only took 4-5 yrs for pilot requiirements to change after the Colgan 3407 regional airline flight

  2. How about putting in the legislation or regulations that any drone found in a TFR, or interfering with emergency or public safety operations will be forfeited to the agency responsible for the incident – might make some low-cost UAS acquisitions for some agencies. Owner has to surrender all controls, accessories, etc. Also, I suspect at least some users are hoping to get the next prize-winning photo and sell it for big bucks, so make it illegal to publish, display, buy, or sell any photos obtained by any UAV operating in violation of a TFR, or over any emergency, fire scene, or similar situation without explicit permission from the IC (so agencies could still utilize them when appropriate). Media might be less inclined to buy a sensational photo if they would be civilly and/or criminally liable for doing so, thus reducing the market for the photos.
