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

Washington and you want to fly your

drone here's every drill ma you need to

follow

now there's three 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 drone flight is not allowed

at any Bellevue parks now if you do plan

on flying out there I do recommend

checking out this guidebook it

detailed local laws but it also gives

you contact information for questions

you are also not allowed to fly within

400 feet of the lateral boundaries of

numerous Department of Energy facilities

including the Hannaford site in Franklin

County now for the city laws in Seattle

you are not allowed to fly your drone at

any park and that's it those are all the

dramas you need to follow in Washington
