FAA Unveils New Drone Rules

The FAA has announced some new rules regarding the use of drones but will they mean fewer unmanned aircraft in the sky?

Matt Johnson at Prestige Aerial in San Antonio says it’ll mean the exact opposite.

“This allows people to operate for money or commercial purposes.”

Johnson doesn’t think there’s anything in the new guidelines that will make it more difficult for people to operate drones legally.

In fact, Michael Huerta with the FAA is predicting a huge increase in drone use in the next year.

“The FAA forecast there could be as many as 600,000 unmanned aircraft used commercially during the first year after this rule is in place.”
