Statement Regarding the Recent NTSB Ruling on Commercial Drone Use
The Drone User Group Network is pleased that Americans will finally be able to reap the economic benefits of drone entrepreneurship, as other countries have allowed for a number of years. We see commercial use as a key factor in allowing this technology to reach its maximum potential to benefit our society. However, as people rush in to start new drone businesses it is paramount that everyone keeps safety and respect for privacy foremost in their minds. We see an important role for community groups like DUGN in helping to educate the public and promote a culture of safe and respectful flight practices.
