This bill permits municipalities to enact an ordinance prohibiting the operation of civilian unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly referred to as drones, under certain circumstances. Specifically, under the provisions of this bill, a municipality may enact an ordinance prohibiting a person from operating a drone in the flight path of an airplane and within 12 miles of an airport. Under the bill, "civilian unmanned aerial vehicle" means an aerial vehicle owned or operated by a private individual or business entity that uses aerodynamic forces to propel the vehicle and does not carry a human operator, and which is capable of flying autonomously or being piloted remotely and conducting surveillance.
