Will No-Fly Zones Dictate the Future of Drone Use?

At NoFlyZone.org, addresses nationwide can be registered and added to a map of properties where owners have expressed their desire to keep drones away. Similar to a Do Not Call list, NoFlyZone is sharing the addresses with a coalition of seven drone manufacturers, who will pass the information on to their users and code geofences around the registered properties to physically keep drones from flying near them.

NoFlyZone founder and CEO Ben Marcus notes that participation by drone companies is voluntary, and it is up to them to ensure their users are complying with the no-fly list.

“We cannot guarantee that no drones will fly over a registered property, but the number should be greatly reduced,” Marcus says.

The FAA is seeking public comment on the proposed rules through April 24.
