NAR Participates in FAA Working Group

NAR has been invited to participate in an on-going Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) working group on Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs). NAR will use this opportunity to educate FAA officials on how REALTORS® are interested in utilizing this technology safely and responsibly. Currently, the FAA prohibits the use of UASs for any commercial purpose, such as creating a video to sell property. The FAA is on track to propose regulations in November that will establish a timeframe for integrating small UASs into the national airspace. NAR supports regulations that would allow members to use this technology safely but that are not overly cumbersome or expensive.
