UAV Coach recently published an article summarizing California drone laws, including 3 statewide laws passed by the California State Legislature.

According to the California Department of Transportation and the California General Assembly, California has three state-wide laws concerning the use of drones in the state.

SB 807 // 2016

This law provides immunity for first responders who damage a UAS that was interfering with the first responder while he or she was providing emergency services.

AB 1680 // 2016

This law makes it a misdemeanor to interfere with the activities of first responders during an emergency.

AB 856 // 2015

This law prohibits entering the airspace of an individual in order to capture an image or recording of that individual engaging in a private, personal or familial activity without permission. This legislation is a response to the use of UAS by the press in covering celebrities and other public figures.

All drone pilots operating commercially in the state of California are subject to the FAA’s Part 107 rules. Learn more about the FAA’s certification process to obtain a commercial drone license in this free guide.
