Drone Law:

A Brief History, Overview, and
Current Status of Drone Law

Whether you own one or not, drones seem to be everywhere lately! This presentation will discuss the proliferation of both commercial and hobby UAS and drones, and the resulting local, state, and federal restrictions and regulations. Discussion will range from the governmental agency’s power to regulate the use of these unmanned aerial vehicles to the best way to make a complaint against a drone operator. You will even learn what bears think about drones!

Many questions have come in from the public regarding the legal use of both commercial and private drones, and this presentation is intended to help provide answers.
