Court Ruling Strikes Down Hobby Drone Registration Rule

A federal court in Washington, D.C., has ruled an FAA rule requiring hobby drone operators to register their unmanned aerial vehicles violates a 2012 federal law.

With me to talk about the significance of the ruling and what it means is Sarah Nilsson. She’s an aviation attorney and teaches aviation and drone law classes at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

She’s also the author of a book on the subject called "Drones Across America."

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
