Q. What are the policies of the DOT concerning drones and unmanned aircraft?
The Federal Aviation Administration has created an entire web site that deals with the evolving issue of unmanned aircraft systems at: http://www.faa.gov/uas/
The agency wants the public to know how and when to contact the FAA regarding safety concerns with UAS operations. You can visit the Agency's Aviation Safety Hotline website or call 1-866-835-5322, Option 4.
