Education, Compliance, and Enforcement of Unauthorized UAS Operators
Here is the approach the FAA is taking to operators who are found to be out of compliance on unmanned aircraft system (UAS) activity.
The bottom line is:
1. Counsel and educate the operator
if that doesn't work or the violation is serious:
2. Consider enforcement action
The document goes into considerable detail on questions of UAS and Model Aircraft operation. The bottom line is, if you are a farmer and use a UAS to look at your crop, you are not a model airplane. You are a commercial operation.
