Mr Jonathan Rupprecht

Drone Attorney/ Flight Instructor/ Professor
Rupprecht Law, P.A


Forbes, Huffpost, Inc., Newsweek, Politico, NPR, Marketwatch, The Independent, and many other sources have cited or quoted Jonathan B. Rupprecht who is a lawyer and a FAA-certificated commercial pilot with single-engine, multi-engine, and instrument ratings. He is also a FAA-certificated airplane flight instructor and instrument flight instructor.
Jonathan obtained a Bachelor of Science in Professional Aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Magna Cum Laude, and a Juris Doctor from Florida International University School of Law. He is currently an adjunct faculty professor for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Unmanned Systems Legal and Regulatory Compliance course.
The American Bar Association has published a book on unmanned aircraft law that Jonathan co-authored, called Unmanned Aircraft in the National Airspace: Critical Issues, Technology, and the Law, with other drone attorneys. Jonathan wrote two chapters on administrative law, the FAA rule-making process, the special rule on unmanned aircraft, and a brief history of unmanned aircraft. Jonathan also authored another book called Drones: Their Many Civilian Uses and the U.S. Laws Surrounding Them which is currently being used as a textbook at many universities around the U.S. as part of their unmanned aircraft curriculum.
He was first an advisor for one of the amicus briefs for the highly publicized Huerta v. Pirker case. Jonathan worked with John Taylor on the Taylor v. FAA case which in May 2017 resulted in the Federal District Court of Appeals for D.C. striking down the FAA’s registration regulations. He also briefly helped on the Singer v. City of Newton case which was the first case to strike down a local drone law as unconstitutional.
Jonathan is currently practicing law in South Florida at his firm Rupprecht Law, P.A. (www.jrupprechtlaw.com) where he assists clients with exemptions, waivers, authorizations, FAA enforcement actions, and various other drone related matters.
