hello everyone my name is Nick and today

I'm gonna be talking about drone laws

now I get asked all the time about drone

laws at different states cities and

counties

so in this 50 part series I'm gonna go

over every single drone law that you

need to follow now make sure you hit

that subscribe button and let's get into

it

oh also this is not legal advice now

either you live in or plan on visiting

Virginia and you want to fly your drone

here is every drone law you need to

follow now there's 3 different parts to

this there's the federal there's state

and there's city laws and you need to

follow all of them now first let's go

over the federal laws now if you're

flying for fun a lot not for money here

is every federal law you need to follow

but if you are flying for cash skip to

this time code you must register your

drone with the FAA drone zone website

I'll link it below you must fly within

visual sight you must fly below 400 feet

your drone must be under 55 pounds you

must never fly near another aircraft if

you're flying within 5 miles of an

airport you must notify the control

tower and you must never fly near

emergency response efforts now for the

commercial fliers you must hold a remote

pilot's license issued by the FAA

you must also register your drone with

the FAA drone zone website your drone

must be under 55 pounds you must fly

within Class G airspace you must fly

below 400 feet you can only fly during

daytime or at civil twilight which is 30

minutes after sunset you must fly under

100 miles per hour

you must yield the right away to all

manned aircraft I can't fly over people

and lastly you must not fly from a

moving vehicle unless you're in a

lightly populated area now these things

can be waived by the FAA but you must

get a waiver beforehand

now that we got the federal laws out of

the way here the state laws local

authorities made

and or restrict flight around the

vicinity of any fire incident also

authorities are not liable if they

destroy or damage your drone in

enforcing this law it is also illegal to

use your drone to trespass for

peeping-tom purposes Washington DC is

basically a no drone zone also you are

not allowed to fire drum within 15 miles

of the Ronald Reagan Washington National

Airport now flying within 30 miles of

this Airport is only allowed under

special circumstances and under certain

restrictions and that's it
