NAR Meets With FAA on UAVs

NAR recently met with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) officials to discuss NAR's concerns and perspectives regarding the upcoming proposed rulemaking to regulate small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).   NAR encouraged the FAA to expedite this proposed rulemaking and quickly develop a regulatory framework for commercial use of UAV technology that addresses public safety and privacy concerns, but permits a commercial UAV industry to flourish and allows Realtors to safely use the technology if they choose to do so.  FAA officials stated that they were moving forward with the proposed rulemaking for publication in Nov., 2014, and are very interested in integrating this technology into the national airspace.
