Schumer Demands Federal Action After Drone Gets in Way of Landing Plane in New York

U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer called on the federal government Friday to release what he dubs “much-needed rules” for the use of unmanned drones in light of two recent instances of drones encroaching into Westchester County Airport airspace.
The Democratic senator from New York says recent “near-miss” cases of drones flying dangerously close to passenger planes, including one that encroached on a jet’s airspace as it was landing in Westchester County, underscore the need for the government to outline regulations that clearly delineate what is legal in terms of drone use — and what is not.
