Unmanned aircraft systems, also called drones, have the potential to change the way society approaches agriculture, public safety, construction and many other important industries.

As a leader in drone implementation, one of the Wyoming Department of Transportation's primary goals is to ensure that users in Wyoming – whether recreational, commercial or government – are flying the aircraft safely and responsibly. 

Although the Federal Aviation Administration has exclusive authority over the use of airspace in the United States – including the airspace used by drones – WYDOT has the authority to implement and manage regulations pertaining to state laws concerning drone operations within the state.
How the law applies to you, depends on how you're using your drone.
