The US Department of Transportation proposes new rules for operating drones

14 Jan 2019

The US Department of Transportation proposed two new rules concerning drones. The first rule suggests that drones would be able to fly at night and over populated areas without waivers, but will still have certain limitations on weight and design. The second rule seeks public input to identify drone safety and security issues. These steps are taken in order to promote the integration of drones into the US national airspace system while dealing with the possible concerns involved in this move.
