    Why don’t you draft and submit to the FAA a suggested regulation with all of the possible permutations for who needs to go through the process and who doesn’t? Just don’t run us out of 1s and 0s.

    Aerial application, be it by drone, or manned plane is regulated. The FAA and other federal agencies have decided it is in the public interest and it is within the purview of the enabling legislation from congress for them to do so.
