New FAA Bill!

Adaptive Flight’s Hornet Micro (2.4 lbs) is a great solution for first responders wanting to immediately add UAVs to their portfolio. President Obama has signed the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Modernization and Reform Act 2012 which includes provisions for granting military, commercial, and privately-owned unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) greater access to U.S. airspace. One of the major provisions of the bill allows first responders to fly very small UAS (4.4 pounds or less) within 90 days if they meet certain requirements. The Hornet Micro falls within that weight specification. Another provision of the Act will require small UAS (under 55 pounds) be allowed to fly in the U.S. Arctic, 24 hours a day, beyond line-of-sight, at an altitude of at least 2,000 feet, within one year. Adaptive Flight’s Hornet Mini (8.8 lbs) and Hornet Maxi (15 – 18 lbs) are both ideal options which fall within the weight specifications.
