Back in 2015, the FAA introduced a ruling which required drone owners to register their drones with the agency. Given that some drone owners in the past have been quite a nuisance with their drones by flying it into restricted airspace or onto other people’s property, this registration basically made drone owners more accountable for their actions.
We’ve seen 3D printing being used in all kinds of industries where it can be used to create things on the spot that might otherwise take a long time. It also helps companies and users create working prototypes on the fly, and we’ve also seen how it can be used in the fashion industry to help create customized sneakers.
Following the increasing number of reports of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 exploding, it was understandable that the FAA and airline companies around the world banned the phone from being brought on board. Airlines would also make announcements ahead of flights to remind passengers that they should not possess the phone on their person.
The Boeing Dreamliner is a beautiful airplane. It’s also one of the most technologically advanced airplanes in the sky right now but it has had a few problems in getting off the ground. The FAA has advised airlines every step of the way and its latest advisory offers a tried and tested solution for fixing problems with complex machines: turning it off and on again. FAA is making airlines reboot […]
A couple of days ago, it was reported that the FAA was considering the idea of banning the Galaxy Note 7 on board flights in the US due to the phones being recalled for exploding batteries. Now it looks like the agency has come forward with an official statement on its website on the issue.
By now many of you guys would have heard the news that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is currently experiencing a spate of battery explosions. Thankfully the number of phones that have been reported to have exploded is but a fraction of the overall phones Samsung has sold, but they are still enough for Samsung to actually recall them.
While drones do help with getting some amazing photos and videos from a high-up perspective, there’s a time and place for them. For example flying them near an airport is obviously a big no-no not only for security reasons, but for safety reasons as well. We know that the FAA has been looking at different ways to detecting drones and recently they might have borrowed some tech from the FBI.
Last year there was a report of a man who shot down a drone that flew over his backyard. A judge later cleared the man in question, claiming that he was within his right to shoot down the drone and before you get too excited about the idea of shooting down drones flying in your backyard, you might want to read the FAA’s ruling.
It looks like the folks over at the FAA could be looking into making changes to the proposed regulations where drones are concerned, and the committee has invited a number of commercial stakeholders, where among them include the likes of Alphabet’s Google X, Intel and GoPro, to the group in order to get their views on the situation. Recommendations will be worked on from March 2016 onward, with a final […]
It was just yesterday that we brought you word on how this year’s Super Bowl event will be different from all of the others, simply because there is a “No-Drone-Zone” that has been implemented. In other words, you are not supposed to bring your drone to the party, and even if you successfully smuggled it into the stadium somehow, it would be in your best interest to keep it hidden […]
It looks like there were close to 300,000 owners who decided to register their aircraft with the U.S. government within the first month of the initiative itself. The FAA’s registration rule kicked off on December 21st last year, where it applied to drones that tipped the scales between 0.55 pounds and 55 pounds. Owners were required to register their drones before flying it outdoors, and each registration will remain valid […]
A couple of days ago we reported that drone owners could now register their drones with the FAA. We expect that there will be plenty of drone owners out there who think that they can get away with not registering, but it seems that the program is somewhat of a success as they have seen 45,000 registrations within the first 48 hours.According to the FAA, “The agency has seen strong […]
Last month the FAA announced that drone owners would be required to register their drones with the agency. The drone registration act is expected to come into effect on the 21st of December, 2015 meaning that if you haven’t registered your drone already, you should probably get on that ASAP.Drone registrations are now open and in case you’re hearing about this for the first time, existing drone owners have until […]
It’s common to hear the phrase “Uber for …” being used to describe startups that essentially offer a similar service to the popular ride hailing app, and that’s precisely what was used for Flytenow, a startup that connected private pilots with passengers with the service being referred to as “Uber for planes.” It has had some troubles with the Federal Aviation Administration which has been successful in grounding the service […]
