DRONELIFE Enters Our 10th Year! Our Top 3 Predictions for the Drone Industry in 2023
It may be hard for newer entrants to the sector to realize that just 10 years ago, the commercial use of drones was actually illegal in the United States, according to a Section 333. From 2014 – 2016, companies who wished to operate drones commercially had to receive a Section 333 exemption from the FAA. It wasn't until the introduction of Part 107 in 2016 that there was a clear and standardized legal path for commercial drone use.
