Reuters: FAA to Issue New Guides for Commercial Drone Flights

Federal aviation administration (FAA)The Federal Aviation Administration could soon release new guidelines to streamline the authorization process and ease restrictions on the use of drones for commercial operations, Reuters reported Friday.

David Morgan writes that sources pointed to the potential removal of the requirement for certification to fly drones and opportunities for companies to gain exemption from the ban on commercial drone flight.

The guidelines would help boost a growing industry of businesses that leverage drone technology, the report said.

FAA has been working toward eventually lifting the ban on most commercial drone operations and has released a proposed regulation framework on the use of small drones in February.
