Bone McAllester Norton will Host Draft Drone Regulations Meeting, March 17

Nashville, Tenn.—(March 10, 2015) Nashville-based law firm Bone McAllester Norton PLLC will host a meeting regarding draft regulations released by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS, or commonly, “drones”). The free meeting, open to the public, will be held the morning of Tuesday, March 17, 2015. Business owners and decision makers in all fields that might either use UAS or be impacted by their use are encouraged to attend.  There will be an opportunity to learn more about the proposed regulations and provide input on their development.

“The proposed UAS rules provide both challenges and opportunities for new and for well-established businesses,” said James Mackler, attorney and founder of Bone McAllester Norton’s UAS focus. “Our firm has a long history of guiding entrepreneurs through complicated regulations. We look forward to working with our clients to help them leverage the potential of this emerging technology.”

Mackler will be joined by Lt.Gen. John Castellaw, USMC (Retired), CEO of Farmspace Systems. “Unmanned Aerial Systems Federal Regulations Meeting” will provide an overview of UAS technology and how it is being used in the U.S. marketplace. The FAA’s proposed regulations will also be addressed. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide comments to the proposed ruling. Continuing Legal Education credits are available.

"Unmanned aerial systems have the potential to transform several industries,” Castellaw said. “In agriculture, they can help increase crop production to meet the needs of nine billion people by 2050 while reducing costs for farmers and consumers."
