On Sunday February 15th, 2015 the FAA released it's current proposal for "drones" or UAVs in the National Airspace for commercial use.
Lewis Realty has previously filed an exemption to fly it's hexacopter to take photos and videos of homes and the general Topsail Island area.
While the rules will take at least a year to become law, Chris Rackley, President of Lewis Realty applaudes the FAA in a common sense approach to a budding industry.
WWAY TV 3 came back to the island to interview Rackley on his views on the new proposals. The interview is below and the proposal summary along with an Executive Order from President Obama concerning Privacy and UAV is available for download.
