Drone in Flight
Unmanned aircraft systems, also called drones, have the potential to change the way society approaches agriculture, public safety, construction and many other important industries.

As a leader in drone implementation, one of the N.C. Department of Transportation's primary goals is to ensure that users in North Carolina – whether recreational, commercial or government – are flying the aircraft safely and responsibly.

Although the Federal Aviation Administration has exclusive authority over the use of airspace in the United States – including the airspace used by drones – NCDOT has the authority to implement and manage regulations pertaining to state laws concerning drone operations within the state.

How the law applies to you​​ depends on how you're using your drone. Click below to learn more.
