Today’s question is about the new executive order issued by President Trump on January 18, 2021.
Just before President Trump ended his term, he signed a bunch of executive orders – one of them being Executive Order 13981 on January 18, 2021. Titled “Protecting United States from Certain Unmanned Aircraft Systems“, this order places restrictions on the use of drones and drone spare parts manufactured in certain countries. And this order also enforces additional flight restrictions.
But, with the blue administration now in charge, is the executive order still valid? Will the Biden team follow up on this executive order or simply scrap it? For all this and much, much more, tune in to our latest show now. Enjoy! Fly Safe!
