Kasznica discusses commercial drone operations in Next Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Drone Masters helps aspiring UAV operations get a lift

Justine Kasznica, special counsel in the Technology and Manufacturing Practice, was quoted in Next Pittsburgh about the regulatory challenges associated with commercial drone flying and the steps that the advocacy group, Pittsburgh Drone Masters, is taking to educate individuals on compliance. The article explains that unlike the requirements for piloting a recreational drone, obtaining permits to fly a commercial drone can be a tedious and confusion process, as a commercial drone operator must apply for an FAA exemption, under Section 333 of the Modernization and Reform Act of 2012. 

The article quotes Justine addressing complications with the requirements and saying, ‘“There are a number of potential commercial flyers who don’t know exactly what they need to do to be fully compliant.”’ 

Additionally, the article mentions the seminar on January 28, 2016,  presented by Pittsburgh Drone Masters, at which Justine will further speak on UAV and commercial drone laws.
