Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said in a speech last Wednesday that the U.S. Department of Transportation will make public new regulations allowing for UAV flights over people within the next couple of weeks. Currently, UAV operators need to seek a waiver from the FAA if they want to operate over people. The FAA has been working on the rule for several months, but it was previously delayed by the Department of Defense and FBI over security concerns.
The rule is expected to have a remote identification and tracking requirement, key pieces of technology NAAA and many other manned aviation groups deem necessary for the same operation of UAVs.
