This book has 402 citations and was last updated on February 10, 2015. The media has been buzzing about Amazon's announcement of their plans to use drones to deliver packages to customers. Soon after Amazon made their announcement, DHL and UPS followed with their own drone delivery announcements. Google has also become interested in drones as evidenced by their purchase of Titan Aerospace. These activities have caused many people to wonder what is going on with integration which is why I wrote this book. This book was written to be a useful resource for hobbyists, lawyers, businessmen, or anyone wanting to know what is going on legally to integrate what are called unmanned aircraft, "drones," or remotely piloted aircraft into the United States' airspace. While many individuals have been talking about the Fourth Amendment concerns with unmanned government aircraft (public unmanned aircraft), this book does not focus on those privacy concerns. This book will give an overview about unmanned aircraft and then explore their uses. Finally, this book will dive into the statutes, regulations, and policy statements surrounding unmanned aircraft.
