FAA Reminds Airports Not to Use Their Own Counter-UAS—Again

FAA Reminds Airports Not to Use Their Own Counter-UAS—Again

As drones become more and more commonplace, some authorities have taken to employing their own counter-UAS measures. Image source Take, for example, the Miami Police, who were recently in the news for hiring a private company to jam signals in order to keep drones from flying at the Ultra music festival. The reason the Miami Police story is newsworthy is because the jamming was probably done in violation of federal law. In general, the FAA has “exclusive authority to regulate aviation safety,” and therefore any state or local authority interfering with an aircraft without FAA permission is probably violating federal law. To their credit, the Miami Police didn’t seem to know that what they were doing was against federal law, and shut the jamming down as soon as they found out. Which points to the larger issue. As drones become a regular presence in the skies local and state authorities want to do something about them, but usually don’t have any idea what they actually can do, if anything. Related to this, local law enforcement can often be unaware of federal laws concerning drones, and may stop a commercially certified drone pilot from performing an operation that is completely legal simply because they don’t know the law. To make matters worse, state and local drone laws in the U.S. often directly contradict federal drone laws as outlined by the FAA’s Part 107 rules, with bans on flying in certain locations or in certain manners that are completely FAA-compliant—in other words,
