DVAP Weighs in on the Use of Drones

Written by Desert View Aerial Photography on March 25th, 2014

drone-aerial-photographyUnmanned aerial vehicles, also known as drones are becoming more and more popular despite the Federal Aviation Administration’s ban against drones for commercial use, pending revised regulatory rules set forth to be released in 2015.

Regardless of current FAA regulations, large and small businesses alike are utilizing the newly established drone technology. Production companies are embracing the use of remote-controlled drones to revolutionize the film and television industry. Companies such as Netflix and Amazon have been actively pursuing their operations policy to include drones for future product distribution.

Unmanned aerial vehicles highlight just how far technological innovations have come since the introduction of aerial photography and videography. Drones are an innovative advancement of aerial technology, but are quickly outpacing the regulatory framework in place and posing safety risks to manned aircraft.

With the pace of aerial technological developments ever increasing, an updated and effective regulatory framework development is expected by the FAA in 2015. Drones spark a new area of innovation, so rather than ban the technology completely, we as a society must determine how to provide a safe environment for the operation of drones, while ensuring individuals’ privacy and safety are protected. It is important to note where drones should and should not be utilized.

Over the past few years the use of unmanned aerial vehicles has grown increasingly popular in the agriculture sector. Farmers and scientists alike can fly, view, and analyze aerial photographs to distinguish between where crops are growing and where they are not. Using UAVs, farmers can monitor crops for disease and precision-spray pesticides, as well as keep better track of livestock out in the fields. Drones are introducing game-changing capabilities that are making a huge impact on commercial industries like food, agriculture, and residential real estate. Therefore, large-scale farms and isolated rural areas appear to be an ideal environment for drone developments, especially since privacy and safety are less of a concern in these remote settings, unlike commercial use for residential real estate, where safety and privacy are of concern.

While the use of drones exhibits how fast aerial technology has increased in the past few years, it also exhibits the lack of proper FAA regulations. For that reason, the integration of manned and unmanned aircraft needs some regulation to ensure the safety of Americans is upheld.
