On March 29, 2016, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that its “blanket” altitude authorization for Section 333 exemption for commercial drone operators will increase from 200 feet to 400 feet. After an extensive risk evaluation, the FAA determined that commercial drones can fly up to 400 feet except in restricted airspace. FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said, “Expanding the authorized airspace for these operations means government and industry can carry out unmanned aircraft missions more quickly with less red tape.” However, all commercial drone operators must still comply with other existing rules such as only flying the drones in daylight, within the visual line of sight, and at least five miles from a control tower of an airport. This is yet another step in the right direction for businesses looking to utilization drones to cut costs and increase efficiency.
