EASY TO READ & USE. This book was written to be a useful resource for hobbyists, lawyers, professors, businessmen, or anyone wanting to know what is going on legally to integrate what are called unmanned aircraft, “drones,” or remotely piloted aircraft into the United States’ airspace. While many individuals have been talking about the Fourth Amendment concerns with unmanned government aircraft (public unmanned aircraft), this book does not focus on those privacy concerns. This book will give an overview about unmanned aircraft and then explore their uses. Finally, this book will dive into the statutes, regulations, and policy statements surrounding unmanned aircraft.
