Dronedesk partners with the Drone Advocacy Alliance to fight for your right to choose the drones you fly

4 min read Jun 20th 2024

At Dronedesk, we understand the passion and innovation that drives the drone community. With a large user-base across the US, UK and Europe, we've witnessed first-hand the incredible potential of drones across various industries. From stunning aerial photography to life-saving search and rescue missions, drones are revolutionizing the way we work and live.

However, there's a growing threat to this progress. Lawmakers in the U.S. are currently considering legislation that could significantly restrict your ability to choose and use drones. Commercial drone operators who provide vital services, from infrastructure inspections to precision agriculture, could be severely hampered. Even public safety officials who rely on drones for search and rescue operations might face limitations.

The impact of these restrictions goes beyond US borders. Decisions made here can set a precedent for drone regulations around the world. This could stifle innovation and hinder the incredible potential of drone technology.

Why we should fight for drone freedom

Drones offer a multitude of benefits:

  • Enhanced Public Safety: Drones can assist firefighters in battling wildfires, help search and rescue teams locate missing persons, and provide aerial support to law enforcement.
  • Revolutionized Industries: Drones play a crucial role in construction by mapping sites, inspecting infrastructure, and monitoring progress. They also assist in agriculture with precision crop spraying and field analysis.
  • Economic Growth: The drone industry is a significant job creator, fostering innovation and supporting countless businesses.
  • Unparalleled Creativity: Drones empower photographers and videographers to capture stunning aerial visuals, offering unique perspectives for storytelling and artistic expression.

Taking a stand: The Drone Advocacy Alliance

Dronedesk is proud to partner with the Drone Advocacy Alliance. This organization is dedicated to ensuring drone users have a voice in shaping the future of drone technology. They advocate for fair and responsible drone use regulations that promote safety and innovation. The Drone Advocacy Alliance recognizes that the drone industry is still evolving, and they believe regulations should be crafted in a way that allows this technology to flourish. They work to educate policymakers about the benefits of drones and the potential negative consequences of overly restrictive legislation.

Mission

The Drone Advocacy Alliance's mission is to work with industry stakeholders and legislators to create an open, safe and honest U.S. drone marketplace that will enable end-users to pick the right tools for their operational needs and help bolster the U.S. industry. We believe that drones provide incalculable benefits to society and that users should be able to select the best options for their unique needs.

Goals

Inform end-users about policies that could impact their ability to choose and use drones, while supporting policies that spur innovation and competition within the U.S. drone industry without restricting access to the market based on country of origin.

Streamline the process so end-users can quickly and easily share their opposition to legislation that seeks to restrict market access based on country of origin, and their support for legislation that steers the industry towards long-term success. The Alliance is committed to supporting advocacy that is consistent with our goals and mission and reserves the right to suspend any message or participant for content that is inappropriate, vulgar, or otherwise inconsistent with our mission.

Enable end-users to make their voices heard by policymakers across the country.

Educate policymakers on the positive impacts that drones have for American first responders, small businesses, environmental research and more.
