FAA’s $1.9 million fine against drone photography company is biggest yet

The Federal Aviation Administration is getting serious about enforcing regulations about drone operations.

The largest civil penalty yet against an unmanned aircraft (drone) operator was announced Tuesday, when the FAA proposed a $1.9 million fine for SkyPan International, Inc., an aerial photography company based in Chicago.

The FAA said SkyPan conducted a total of 65 unauthorized drone operations in Chicago and New York City from 2012 to 2014. Citing congested airspace over heavily populated cities, the FAA said the operations “were illegal and not without risk.”

Forty-three of the 65 operations were in the highly restricted New York Class B airspace, according to the FAA.
