Airborne-Unmanned 11.14.17: Drone Registration, AT&T's Flying COW, Pilot Charged

A defense authorization bill that includes a return to civilian drone registration has been approved by a House/Senate conference committee, and is expected to be passed by both chambers and signed by President Trump.

The language is included in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2018. It would again require the registration of drones weighing more than about half a pound with the federal government. AUVSI president and CEO Brian Wynne has expressed support for the policy, saying a drone registration system "promotes responsibility by all users of the national airspace." This COW might not be able to jump over the Moon, but it is helping residents of hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico make phone calls. COW is an acronym for Cell On Wings, It is a helicopter drone that is being used by AT&T to extend cellular service in areas where the infrastructure was severely damaged by hurricane Maria. The experimental technology is providing data, voice, and text services to customers. The 20-year-old Pasco, WA man who was operating a drone that impacted the top of the Space Needle in Seattle on New Year's Eve 2016 has been charged with reckless endangerment, and faces a fine and jail time. Cole Kelly was operating the drone that impacted an area near pyrotechnicians who were getting ready for a midnight fireworks show to ring in the new year.
