In our latest episode of the Drone Life News show, we cover all the latest news in the drone industry and bring you the hottest updates from regulations to drone deliveries to commercial drone application news.

In our first news segment of the drone life news, we discuss all the latest news and takeaways from the Drone Week conference in Amsterdam. Miriam just returned from the conference and has all the first hand information for our viewers including European drone regulation updates, Urban Air mobility and Europe’s take on all the drone developments.

In our next segment we go over Texas drone regulations being struck down by federal courts and its implications. A federal judge had recently struck down a Texas drone law, one of the most restrictive in the country, for violating the First Amendment’s protections of freedom of speech and the press. We discuss the specifics of the case and the applications that were allowed by Texas’s now struck down law and how it was unconstitutional.

In our next segment, we discuss Billy Nolen’s recruitment as acting administrator of the FAA and his background and possible ruling/considerations that the drone world can expect under his leadership. Will Billy, with years of experience in aviation safety have different views on the regulations compared to his predecessor, Steve Dickson, who brought years of commercial aviation experience?

In our last segment we bring all the latest updates from the drone delivery world – Wing’s latest trials and Flighttracks commercial tests and what these means to the drone delivery business and drone world as a whole.
