On July 15, 2014, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) published its latest National Policy Notice concerning drones, titled “Education, Compliance, and Enforcement of Unauthorized Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operators.” The Notice provides guidance to aviation safety inspectors investigating individuals or entities who operate their Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) in a “non-compliant” way. The FAA published the Notice in response to the “increasing number of UAS-incident reports,” in order to ensure continued safe UAS operations.
