New York City Developers Lobby to Legalize Drones
While real estate developers in large cities like LA & Chicago are reaping the benefits of UAV technology, those in NY "say a 1948 law effectively prohibits drones from flying within city boundaries is overly broad and out of date.
City laws require building owners to inspect their facades every five years. This usually means erecting scaffolding over nearly the entire building, a process that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and take months to complete." This can be done in a fraction of the time & cost using drones.
NYC is getting left behind on drone technology. Will they be able to amend this law while prioritizing safety in the largest city in America?
