Mayor Adams Unveils new Guidelines to Allow Responsible Drone Usage in New York City

New Rules Create Permitting Process for Use of Drones.

The rules apply to building inspections, infrastructure inspections, and capital project planning. Additionally, the rules ensure that proper safeguards are in place to protect the safety and privacy of all New Yorkers.

“Drones are going to allow us to make facade inspections faster and safer, help us inspect and maintain our bridges, tunnels, and critical infrastructure,” said Mayor Adams.

Under the new rules, individuals and entities will be required to apply for a permit to legally take-off or land a drone or any other kind of unmanned aircraft in New York City.
