FAA Preemption of State and Local Laws
The FAA has sent a clear signal to Congress and to State and local officials that preemption is not warranted. The FAA affirmed the substantial land use, zoning, trespass, privacy, and police powers of state and local officials that can be used to address the use of drones in their jurisdictions.

Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to common questions below. Contact Airspace Link today to continue the discussion on managing your local airspace.
Drone technology & automated delivery has been a moving target since drones first started gaining popularity. While much of the technological focus has been on keeping drones in the air or on task, we felt it critical to address the needs of state & local government in regulating local airspace. We offer solutions to address the “last mile” of ensuring drone delivery and public safety do not become mutually exclusive.
The FAA has just awarded 10 cities with the ability for drone delivery companies to pilot solutions. This signals a clear interest for the continued growth and development of drone based services operating within local governments.
While the FAA has a clear process for solving many of the problems of drone delivery, they have not solved how local governments will manage their uncontrolled local airspace (<400 feet). Airspace Link helps state and local governments construct a vision for the future of drone activity in their jurisdictions.
While the FAA is vested by Congress with “intensive and exclusive” responsibility over national airspace, the agency seeks to work with local governments in crafting local ordinances concerning drones. To this end, the FAA has released a fact sheet considering the legal framework for local and state regulation of drones. While careful to stake its federal authority, the FAA expects complimentary and ever-evolving local laws and ordinances to be put in place. Airspace Link works with local jurisdictions to develop and maintain proper “shipping avenues” for commercial drone activity.
The FAA has made clear that under their Part 107 regulations, the only requirement to operate drone aircraft weighing up to 55 pounds is that an individual become a Part 107 operator. Once an individual has a Part 107 certificate they may operate for any reason, whether commercial or recreational.
While there is no longer a distinction at the Federal level, cities and states should consider how to best regulate commercial drones in their communities. Examples of this include instituting additional commercial drone regulations and accountability mechanisms. Cities and states should consult with the FAA before instituting additional requirements for certain drone operations.
