    FAA issues Special Rule to prohibit commercial drone use. 14 CFR Part 91

    FAA, Park Service Ground Drones, Cite Safety Concerns

    The Federal Aviation Administration released a proposed Special Rule for Model Aircraft which will prohibit the use of drones for the delivery of packages and other commercial services. At the end of last year, Amazon had raised the prospect of delivering packages via drones. The agency has requested comments on the proposal. A recent Washington Post series highlighted numerous close encounters between commercial aircraft and small drones, as well as many incidents were drones fell from the sky. The National Park Service has prohibited the use of drones in national parks, citing safety concerns. Last year, EPIC urged the Federal Aviation Administration to mandate minimum privacy standards for drone operators. For more information, see EPIC: Domestic Drones.

    14 CFR Part 91
    [Docket No. FAA-2014-0396]
    Interpretation of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft
    AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
    ACTION: Notice of Interpretation with Request for Comment
    SUMMARY: This action provides interested persons with the opportunity to comment
    on the FAA’s interpretation of the special rule for model aircraft established by Congress
    in the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012. In this interpretation, the FAA
    clarifies that: model aircraft must satisfy the criteria in the Act to qualify as model
    aircraft and to be exempt from future FAA rulemaking action; and consistent with the
    Act, if a model aircraft operator endangers the safety of the National Airspace System,
    the FAA has the authority to take enforcement action against those operators for those
    safety violations.
