  • Know the SkyWay Code!

    Let's face it. Drones (UAVs) are fairly new toys. And new law surrounding the use of civilian drones for both commercial and non-commercial flying is emerging on a monthly basis.

    At times, drone law can seem confusing and inconsistent as the various regulating authorities try to keep pace with the sky rocketing sales. But if you're the owner of a drone, then it's important that you have at least a rudimentary grasp of what we've termed the SkyWay Code or Drone Law. Otherwise, you could find yourself the wrong side of a hefty fine.

    Below you'll find our "Drone Law" blog. It houses a large collection of articles from across the web and tracks the various changes in the law from past to present. The most recent blogs are first. 

    In the right-hand sidebar, you'll find some useful legal recourses, including attorneys who are knowledgable in the area of emerging drone law.
