Former head of the U.S. Department of Justice’s aviation litigation group, Mark Dombroff points out that some people who either are in the UAS business or want to be in the UAS business, are going to be surprised to see how pervasive the regulatory structure really is.

He thinks a lot of people will wake up and realize that this isn’t a business they can necessarily afford to be in, “given how regulated it will be.”

“The people who should be in this business and operating in navigable airspace, should be serious about operating in a regulated environment,” he adds. “The key is understanding the system and  working within it.”

I have to believe that this is very much how the chips will fall. The notion that technology will disrupt aviation law is wildly optimistic and without any foundation.
