Final federal rules that govern the use of commercial drones weighing less than 55 pounds will take effect on August 29. Seth Schuknecht, a former Navy pilot and now an attorney at Fennemore Craig, will discuss those new rules.
Drones are expected to be more and more a part of our everyday lives. Attorney James Arrowood of the Frutkin law firm in Scottsdale will discuss the future use of drones and laws and regulations that can help protect us from possible drone abuse.
President Barack Obama recently signed the National Defense Authorization Act, which allows for the establishment of six testing sites for drones to be used in commercial applications and by the government for other than military use. Arizona is competing to be one of those test sites. Retired Gen. John Regni, a technical adviser with the Arizona Commerce Authority, will discuss the effort.
