FAA announces Remote ID and operations over people final rules for UAS
On Monday, December 28, 2020, the FAA announced two final rules for UAS. The new rules will require Remote Identification (Remote ID) of drones and allow small UAS operators to fly over people and at night under certain conditions.
According to the FAA, Remote ID will help mitigate risks associated with expanded drone operations, such as flights over people and at night. Both rules also support technological and operational innovation and advancements.
