New drone laws take effect: Bring on the innovation!

It's a bird! It's a plane! No -- it's actually a real estate agent preparing a listing
  • The new FAA drone regulations went into effect Monday, August 29.
  • The new rules make it easier for real estate agents to get aerial photos and video for listings.
  • Drone pilots must register their drones and apply for the FAA form 8710-13.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) laid out new regulations for drone usage back in June that went into effect August 26. But who was actually following the rules, anyway? The new regulations make drone flight much easier for the entry-level pilot.
