Well, that was fast. Yesterday, we predicted that “the FAA may have something to say” about a series of videos posted online showing fireworks displays filmed from drones, often flying within the sweep of the exploding shells. A few hours later, the FAA released a statement to the Palm Beach Post, stating that the “FAA is looking into multiple incidents in which unmanned aircraft flew into fireworks displays to determine if there was any violation of federal regulations or airspace restrictions.” One of the most popular videos was filmed over West Palm Beach. As we noted yesterday, the fireworks videos are likely to be an early test of the FAA’s efforts to modernize its drone regulations.
