It is a GREAT thing. The new Part 107 regulation pretty much opens up the use of UAS to levels that can only just be imagined today. You can do almost anything as long as you remain in VLOS and within 400' of something, either the ground or a structure. The FAA has basically given us all the airspace that is not currently being used by manned aircraft. Manned aircraft are required to remain 500' above the ground and 500' horizontally of any man made structure, unless they are landing or taking off. This unused airspace, with a 100' buffer, basically now belongs to UAS. UAS can can even operate at a non-towered airport, but can not interfere with the operations at the airport. At a towered airport you need ATC approval and you will probably be granted it as long as what you are doing is safe and does not interfere with airport operations. You can not fly over a person but you can fly alongside of them, you do not need to maintain a minimum distance. The new Part 107 is far less restrictive than the 333 waivers that exist today in most cases (exception would be 333 waivers for night operation or closed sets). Most of the few restrictions that is written into Part 107 can be waived by the FAA, if you can come up with a safe way of doing your operation. Even the VLOS can be waived, but you will need a way of insuring a similar level of safety would be provided. What about non-commercial operators? Yes even non-commercial operators benefit under the new Part 107. It removes many of the restrictions in P.L. 112-95 imposed on model aircraft including the restrictions placed on model aircraft operating within 5 miles of an airport and operating within community based set of safety guidelines. I do not know, it is over 600 pages, sound pretty intimidating why so many pages? It is not intimidating, the FAA received over 4,600 public comments and they considered all of them. Most of the 600 pages is explanations of why they decided what they did. Sound pretty good so far? What does it prohibit? Careless and reckless operations, which is pretty broad, but necessary. Where are the teeth in the new regulations? Simple, careless and reckless operations can result in loosing your remote pilot privileges. Yes, the new Part 107 is a good thing for all of us and it makes it relatively easy to be legal with the FAA. Is there any bad stuff in the new regulations? Yes, you have to wait till August.
