Federal Aviation Administration wants to protect first responders from drone bombs
from Route Fifty
The Federal Aviation Administration recently issued a rule aimed at protecting law enforcement officers from explosive-laden drones. The measure is meant to address the concerns of law enforcement officers, who told FAA officials that opening up drones to check for registration could potentially set off hidden explosives. Small drone pilots will soon be required to display their FAA registration number on the outside of their aircraft, according to a ruling posted in the Federal Register. Previously, registration numbers could be written on the drone’s battery case or inside another interior compartment.
