Welcome back to Your Drone Questions. Answered!
Today, we tackle an exciting and timely topic: upcoming changes to operating drones beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) from a commercial perspective. 
David discusses the recent signing of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2024 by the president on May 16th. This act sets the stage for significant changes in BVLOS operations, with a final rule expected by September 2025. This new rule will streamline the process for commercial drone operators, eliminating the need for special exemptions.

David provides detailed insights into the legislative process, including the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) set for December 2024, and the public comment period that follows. He explains how this process mirrors the introduction of Part 107 and Remote ID regulations. The upcoming Part 108 will outline the requirements for BVLOS operations, including new certification standards for remote pilots.

These changes are set to revolutionize the drone industry, opening up numerous applications such as drone deliveries, pipeline inspections, and security monitoring. David emphasizes the importance of public feedback in shaping these regulations and encourages drone pilots to participate in the upcoming comment period.
