Drone Innovation Act of 2017

This bill directs the Department of Transportation (DOT) to publish a civil unmanned aircraft (drone) local operation policy framework in the Federal Register. The framework shall provide guidelines to standardize restrictions on the operation of drones and create an environment that encourages innovation and fosters the rapid integration of drones into the national airspace system. DOT shall establish pilot programs to provide technical assistance to governmental entities for regulating the operation of drones.

DOT shall not authorize the operation of drones in local airspace above property where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy without the property owner's permission.
