(WLNS) – The Federal Aviation Administration has released a list of proposed rules on the use of pilot-less drones.
The new rules require drones to weigh less than 55 pounds and fly no faster than 100 miles per hour. The machines would not be allowed to fly higher than 500 feet.
The FAA would also limit their use near airports and the drones would not be allowed in the sky at night.
As for their owners drones must be in their line of sight at all times and they must pass a knowledge test every two years.
These new rules are not expected to go into effect for at least another year. The public will be allowed to weigh in.
