These rules have been in the works for several years. Congratulations to the Federal Aviation Administration for issuing rules for small unmanned aircraft systems. By the end of the decade, expect small flying robot aircraft to be common sights as they give humans a helpful bird’s-eye view in many situations.

As we are enjoying fabulous summer weather, have fun flying, but please fly safe!
