Drones: The FAA's Regulations for Recreational Use

Gregory S. McNeal, Associate Professor of Law and Public Policy at Pepperdine School of Law, discusses new regulations concerning recreational drone use recently issued by the FAA. Professor McNeal explains that these new regulations represent an enormous break from the past, and likely stem from the widespread and increasing popularity of drones. 

As always, the Federalist Society takes no position on particular legal or public policy issues; all expressions of opinion are those of the speaker.
