ISSUE LAS‐7
Recreational Use of Drones Recreational drone use has the potential to interfere with military overflight near the Dare County Range and within Military Training Routes .
Compatibility Assessment Use of unmanned aerial vehicles ( UAVs ), commonly called drones , has increased dramatically as they have become cheaper , smaller , and easier to use . In the US , around 700,000 UAVs were sold in 2015 , according to the Consumer Electronics Association .
The FAA has instituted a ban on UAVs flying over restricted airspace including national parks , some military bases , and within a five mile radius of airports . In April 2017 , the FAA through Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations ( 14 CFR ) § 99.7 – “ Special Security Instructions ,” implemented restrictions for drone flights up to 400 feet within lateral boundaries of 133 military facilities throughout the country . Seymour Johnson AFB and the DCR are not included in these restricted facilities , and there are no FAA provisions restricting drone flight within Military Training Routes .
However , the FAA has seen a large increase in the number of UAVs flying too close to airports and aircraft . From August 2015 to January 2016 , there were nearly 600 incidents in the US reported to the FAA , compared to 238 incidents in all of 2014 . Drones have also been spotted at dangerous operating altitudes , up to 10,000 feet above ground level which can conflict with Military Training Routes that authorize flight as low as 100 feet . These UAVs pose a hazard to aircraft safety , creating potential mid‐air collision scenarios . Technology can be utilized to limit the range of UAVs using geofencing , which uses GPS or Radio Frequency identification to create a geographic boundary that location‐aware devices know to avoid . However , few manufacturers have incorporated this technology into their drones as it is not required .
