FAA Drone Regulations – Recreational Vs. Commercial 2022

FAA Drone Regulations – Recreational Vs. Commercial 2022

One question new and experienced drone operaters have had to ask themselves at some point is – What are the FAA drone regulations – recreational vs. commercial and how do they apply to me? In this video we are going to dig into the FAA website and try to answer that question. By the end of this video you should have a better understanding of the regulations and what catagory you will fall in, and also the steps you will need to take to make sure you are operating within the law.

My hope is that this video will serve as a starting point for newer drone operaters, to help them better understand the ever changing drone regulations in the US. This is not meant to be an end all be all resourse but more of a jumping off point. Some of the opinions expressed in this video are my interpretations and are not meant to be taken as legal advice.

I am not a lawyer and nothing in this video is legal advice.

All informattion comes from the FAA website here

    I’ve been debating getting a drone to use while hiking but since I hike mainly in a green tunnel so I never pull the trigger. Great information on drones and how it relates to your YouTube channel.
