In June 2014, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued comments clarifying the permitted use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for commercial purposes. Real estate was called out specifically as a prohibited use. NAR submitted comments in response to the FAA outlining the positives of permitting commercial use of UAVs in real estate.
