FAA Takes Enforcement Action Against Commercial UAS Operators Without Exemptions

UAS Magazine reports that FAA has taken enforcement action against two companies operating UAS for commercial purposes.  In one case, WCSH6 reported on a photographer that advertised on their website that they offered UAS photography services.  In the other case, Bay News 9 reported on a U-Tube entrepreneur that posted videos taken with their Phantom 2 Vision+.  The website takes money from advertisers.

Both were told they were in violation of Federal regulations by their local FAA office.  We encounter many people that are ignorant of the regulatory restrictions on commercial UAS operation.  ERM has applied for exemption from the FAA rules that would otherwise prohibit commercial use of UAS.
