FAA Today Update
The FAA released their annual aerospace forecast. It now includes projections for unmanned aerial systems (UAS) or as they are commonly called drones. The FAA forecasts that by 2021 there will be as many as 6.12 million drones in the sky. 1.62 million will be commercial drones and the rest hobbyist drones. Complications will be inevitable with millions of drones in the air.
The FAA requires that some commercial drone pilots need to obtain a special license to fly their drones. So far 20,000 pilots have already received their licenses. The increasing demand for licenses is outpacing the FAA’s resources. The FAA doesn’t have any automated system to track the pilots nor does it have the resources to have one built.
