    Not too sure if anyone here receives FAAST emails but here's the newsletter email I received today.

    Fly Safe With Your Drone
    Did you know that if you fly a drone anywhere in the nation’s airspace, you automatically become part of the U.S. aviation system? Under the law, your drone is an aircraft. So while the rules for drones may be different, you have the responsibility to operate safely, just as a Cessna or 747 pilot does. The FAA has developed this safety checklist (PDF) that you, as a pilot, should use whenever you send a drone into the sky. We want you to fly safe, fly smart – and have fun.

    With a few exceptions, those are currently FAA Guidelines only, and not FAA Rules or laws for hobbyists flying drones, although you may have a hard time convincing the media of that, as they constantly confuse the two! :rolleyes:
