Brendan Schulman, a New York lawyer specializing in drones at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP, said the FAA approval was granted for a drone already approved by the Defense Department for military purposes, so it wouldn’t allow for the variety of commercial purposes that many in the industry have in mind. “The FAA is essentially using the military’s prior experience with this specific drone platform in place of the agency’s airworthiness certification requirements, so it is not an option for people hoping to use the newer drones being designed by high-tech startups that are not involved in military applications,” Schulman said. “It is a small step in the right direction but really only for companies who want to operate in very remote locations using military surplus equipment.”
