Drones in the United States, good grief what’s next?

Americans are becoming more and more concerned about the use of drones in the United States as their use is widespread and increasing. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, 1,428 permits have been issued to drone operators in the U.S. since 2007 and 327 of them are still listed as active.

Operators include police, universities and various state and federal departments and agencies. The Federal Aviation Administration also has a September, 2015 Congressional deadline to open airspace in the U.S. to drones, which will dramatically add to their numbers and increase their use.
