RULES & REGULATIONS
Safety and legality is our number one rule.
Safety and legality is our number one rule. The ever changing rules and regulations of Commercial drone flight can change daily. Here at Droteam it is our duty to not only safely operate our Drones but to also follow the rules.
The biggest problem for commercial operations are airports. We are not allowed to operate any commercial drone flight within a Tower Operated airport. Distance to any controlled airport is 5nm. Everything is possible of course but one must apply for a waiver (*). This cant be done overnight, and has to be applied for by the FAA (substantial waiting periods are current)
Below are the FAA regulations, not following these rules can lead to a penalty of up to 30 000$ and or 4 years imprisonment..
