DOT and FAA have proposed some new rules for small unmanned aircraft systems. These new FAA drone rules will help legalizing flights of commercial drones.

The FAA introduced a few novel rules for the employment of small unmanned aircrafts. On the other hand a free hand will be given to the use of creative endeavors in future aircrafts which have yet to see the light of day.

Security measures for small aircraft are mandatory. And visibility guidelines are a must too in the scheme of things. The number of feet the aircraft is above ground level and the degrees of the pilot count too.

As for registration and work ability, they are seen to as well. Flexibility is the word when it comes to drones. Public opinion is being taken into consideration as far as specifications go. The outsiders are being invited to give their valuable commentary on the proposal.

The technological evolution demands a response and the common man is worthy of fulfilling that need. The maintenance of visual line of sight is the crux of the matter in case of small aircraft. The operators of these aircraft have to be in their late teens and pass a test as well as own a certificate.   

Some of the other rules of the game include: avoidance of manned aircraft, annulment of flight upon seeing chances of damage to other aircraft and tact with regard to weather situation and presence of individuals.

Similarly, any flights that go over the heads of people is banned too. The height above the ground is limited. And care with regard to airports is crucial. Any loitering or risk-taking will be promptly penalized.

Routine pre-flight checking and seeing to it that the communication bonds are intact are compulsory. The flying value of the aircraft is of paramount importance. Meanwhile, the technology connected with unmanned aircraft systems is to improve indefinitely.

A wide range of users from professionals to amateurs will get full certification and rights over the usage of the aircraft. The means of employment of these aircraft will also be variegated. From military purposes to farming goals, many are the uses of the flying drones.

There is a subtle difference between manned aircraft and these unmanned drones. The drones will be facing a change of virtual conditions and the vistas will be opened up for their operation. Once the way is paved for their full utilization, things will pick up speed from there on-wards.
