New York 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. 


N.Y. Tax Law Article 28, Part 3, §  1115.

New York’s current statutory law only addresses drones in the context

of its tax code. The statutes provide for drones in its list of sales tax and

compensating use tax exemptions.
