As The White House noticed an unmanned drone landed in the last couple weeks, the US government had to issue warnings not to fly drones. Authorities are preparing rules for using drones to further monitoring. The focus is on the FAA‘s upcoming regulations for using drones.
Ways to use drones in industries
UASs may be used to inspect stretches of other assets in remote areas or pipelines. They also track wildlife, monitor petroleum rig flare stacks, and may help to monitor spills during response activities. Drones in this circumstance can provide new meaning to the phrase “energy efficiency”, since the energy business is contracting after the plunge in petroleum prices.
While the subject is mostly debated during the previous few years, the FAA approves drones use and has regulations for UASs. For some UASs, the FAA issued category type certificates in 2013, they can be used for the Alaska coast for business purposes. Some UASs are designed to do marine and ice mammal studies necessary before drilling.
In June 2014, the FAA approved the very first UAS flights over land. Presently, companies can file a request for an exemption and availability of running UAS operations. When an application is received, the FAA will run a comprehensive operational and technical review that may take months. The procedure includes public notification and feedbacks, it suggests that the FAA will need to address any opposition. In the end, the FAA should issue an approval through a Grant of Exemption from obtaining a Special Airworthiness Certificate.###
