Drones are a very cool new toy, giving us new perspectives and access to the most amazing sights we’d normally not have access to. They're also a very problematic one, quickly raising a lot of concerns about boundaries and privacy leading to a flurry of regulations passed by the FAA. As a result, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) is now claiming that drones are too heavily restricted by the FAA.
According to statistics, there are now more than 1 million drones in the United States. Commonly seen used for recreational/civilian purposes, drones also find use in the commercial and military industries such as for filming or for delivery strikes in areas where flight is considered too risky or difficult.
Tourism companies use drones to film travel destinations, record videos of resorts and post content on social media. Since drones can be operated for different purposes, the U.S Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has some regulations for them. The FAA requires all commercial drones to remain in the pilot's visual line of sight, and they can only be operated during the day or with proper lighting.
More importantly, the FAA requires pilots of commercial drones to have an airman certificate issued by the FAA. Based on the FAA criteria and regulations, a new report was published by the NASEM questioning the efficiency of the FAA's commercial drone regulations. The report points out that the FAA uses the same approach to regulate commercial drones as it does with commercial airlines, an unnecessary and excessive approach that offers no real safety benefits.
The FAA takes an extremely cautious approach to create safety regulations. But the problem is that drones aren't like commercial airlines; they don't pose the same risk of injury or death. Instead, NASEM suggests that the FAA should be worried about more tangible hazards than commercial drones. The FAA responded saying that it is working to improve its drone regulations, but there's been no word as to what changes, or how or when they'd be implemented.
