Best Practices

(BP)

Our commitment to Safety and Compliance is reflected in the following BP policy statement as adopted by our board of directors, on July 1, 2016.  Although (14 CFR) part 107 does not require implementation of BP, our policy is based on current (14 CFR) Part 107 Federal Law and the FAA Voluntary Best Practices Guidelines for small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (sUAV).

 

Exert from:  May 19, 2016 by Angela Simpson, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information.

“UAS holds the potential to provide significant benefits to both industry and consumers in myriad ways. These include using UAS to inspect cell phone towers without risking human lives, monitor crop growth and take aerial photos of real estate. The best practices agreed to by a diverse group of stakeholders -- including  privacy and consumer advocates, industry, news organizations and trade associations --  represent an important step in building consumer trust, giving users the tools to innovate in this space in a manner that respects privacy, and providing accountability and transparency. The   voluntary best practices   encourage UAS users to: 

  • inform affected persons of UAS use and the collection of data;
  • take care in the collection and storage of information that identifies a particular person;
  • limit the use and sharing of such data;
  • secure data; and
  • monitor and comply with the law as it evolves.

These guidelines provide the flexibility to evolve as the industry grows while ensuring a baseline understanding of ethical practices.  We will work with stakeholders on the best ways to disseminate and promote these practices broadly so that businesses and users that were not able to be at the table can take advantage of the collective wisdom in these documents while growing their UAS-related businesses or using their personal UAS responsibly.  We look forward to continuing the conversation with stakeholders as this industry develops and grows
