NAR Submits Comments to FAA on UAVs

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.  NAR encouraged the FAA to quickly develop a regulatory framework for commercial use of UAV technology that addresses safety and privacy concerns, but permits a commercial UAV industry to flourish.
