Abstract

Regulatory, Legal, and Ethical Considerations for Drone Operations - The view from coastal Georgia (outline) The setting: a complex coastal geography, the significant number of restricted state and federal airspaces, including MOAs, along a relatively short coastline, barrier island ownership and jurisdictions, and stakeholder concerns. Examples of drone uses: academic research, Georgia DNR habitat and wildlife management and monitoring, responses to environmental threats, and applications for public safety and first responders Unresolved issues: we are still in an early and "immature" situation with respect to (1) how drones can and should be used, (2) how technology and user experience is shared, (3) training for Remote Pilots and recreation UAS users, including "stay outside the lines" of FAA airspace and DOD MOAs, private property, gatherings and public events, (4) common sense and tactful and honest public relations.
