At issue is that the request was made as an exemption to Rule 333 under the now-ironically named ‘FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012,’ or FMRA. According to the notice, the portion of Rule 333 that governed the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) — or vehicles (UAVs) as the industry often refers them to as — was a stopgap until more permanent regulations were in place. Enter Operation and Certification of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems, Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 107.
