Alaska UAS Laws

 


Note on Federal vs State Laws:

Federal airspace laws take precedence over state drone laws. If a state or local law directly conflicts with FAA regulations, the state or local law is likely to be invalidated. 

 

Definitions:

Alaska statute defines an “unmanned aircraft system” as “an unmanned aircraft operated without direct human intervention from inside the aircraft.”

 
Statutes/Bills (passed):

Article 13. LAW ENFORCEMENT USE OF UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS

HB 255

Three areas within the statute that contain laws related to unmanned aircraft systems:

        (1) use by law enforcement officials

        (2) retention of images captured by small unmanned aircraft systems

        (3) development of training in operation

Currently no statutes or bills for private or hobby use of drones

SCR 4

Continues the Task Force on UAS and specifies additional membership and duties of the task force.
