Updated rules are now in effect for drones. A few years ago, the FAA tightened down a few things, like flying over people, at night, and more. Now some changes have been made to allow these under specific guidelines, and one more added for safety, ensuring that people can’t be cut by the blades. This will likely encourage more people in what is an exciting and fun activity.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said that final rules announced in December took effect on Wednesday allowing for small drones to fly over people and at night, a significant step toward their eventual use for widespread commercial deliveries.
