US Drone Laws (2017) – Drone Laws by State


 

NOTICE: This database is for information purposes only!  It might NOT be up to date or complete. You should seek out a competent attorney licensed in that state.  It is not legal advice. 

I did my best to research the laws.  I ran into a problem when creating the database. Many states have “aircraft” laws that they are applying sometimes to drones. For example, the State of Minnesota requires registration of aircraft under their “aircraft” statutes and they are not applying that to drones. Be on the look out for state departments of aviation changing their positions and applying “aircraft” laws to drones. I did NOT include all the “aircraft” laws into the database unless the state has come out saying they would apply the “aircraft” laws to drones like Minnesota did.
