Drones by the Numbers

Drones are amazing inventions — they’re changing the skies and the way we think about the future of flight. At the FAA, we share a common goal to facilitate the safe integration of commercial fleet and recreational drones into the National Airspace System (NAS).

Along the way, we’re making history in real-time together! Check out the update and success of the UAS industry.

    What a bunch of acquiescent sheep, keep drinking that FAA coolade guys. What ever happened to "USA – land of the free"? What’s next on the FAA agenda? Well, now that we have your personal details you’ll need to obtain the mandatory "permission to fly license" along with paying the fee needed to fund the salaries of the newly established FAA UAS department staff. As the Borg say, "You WILL be assimilated"

    I’d like to see the risk assessment for unmanned traffic before and after the remote ID is put into place. Way more commercial/delivery drones in the sky, while removing hobbyists.

    More numbers: less than 1000 views and only seven comments after two weeks…

    Dear FAA… can you please point me (and the hundreds of thousands of other model/drone flyers who are affected by overly-restrictive regulation) to the risk assessment on which those regulations are based. As I am sure you are aware, *ALL* good (aka fair and effective) regulation is created on the back of a comprehensive, independently peer-reviewed risk assessment. I am sure, given the importance of this, the FAA must have undertaken such a risk assessment and will be more than happy to share it with the recreational drone/RC community as a way of justifying the restrictions they all now face. The ball is now *firmly in your court* and silence from you would speak volumes.

    FAA, when is the live stream scheduled for Q & A from the RC community? Surely you care enough about the US population, you’d surely want to have such an event, After all we’re a part of the US population and we have rights.

    Yes, Commercial drones are here to stay while the FAA and those commercial entities restrict and deny Hobbyists the Greatest majority of the "drones" being used….Thanks, FAA for helping to destroy a Grand Hobby

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ *Where is the risk assessment?* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Remote Id is asking for a bunch of Karens to attack you . most people think all drones can zoom in and spy on people only bad things can become of this …..If anything make it for cops only but you ALSO need to explain the laws to them they know nothing as of now

    The integration of recreational drones is apparently the dumpster as no legal locations will remain to fly them. Meanwhile 3 midair collisions of man carrying aircraft have killed about 20 people in the last month.

    There has been no risk assessment

    FAA sees dollar signs $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$🤔

    I see an important number left out. How much money did FAA bureaucrats pocket from the Commercial Drone Alliance to continue to restrict model aviation? Future pilots and astronauts are being discouraged from the hobby because of useless restrictions (in the name of safety) in order to clear the skies for Amazon and Google.

  13. bigdatapimp on November 1, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    We the UAS community DEMAND the risk assessment that demonstrates the need for ANY of the UAS regulations, let alone Remote ID. Until you do the regulation is INVALID and IS NOT required to be adhered to. Unless demonstrable danger is posed, these regulations are a DRASTIC OVERREACH of the FAAs authority and are almost entirely unlawful. The FAA DOES NOT have the authority to restrict the airspace in this manner. Not to mention there has not been a single piece of regulation for manned aviators regarding the integration of drones. If there was truly a posed danger, there would be a tome of information about it. If you were at least honest about your intentions to sell the airspace, we could respect that.
