US Drones use to be triple till 2020
WASHINGTON: Federal Aviation Administration claimed that US Drones use will be triple till 2020.
The agency claimed that unmanned aircraft industry is boosting very fast. It claimed that drones users will reach to 2.2 million by the end of 2016 and it will be 7 million by 2020.
The agency also launched a registration procedure for having drones weighing from 0.55 pounds to 55 pounds with a cost of $5.
The agency said “The registration rule will aid in investigations and allow the FAA to gather data.”
The agency claimed that 406,000 people have been registered since December.
FAA claimed that rapidly increasing use of unmanned aircraft is affecting air traffic control system and the procedure will help to avoid incident.
CEO of PercisionHawk Bob Young said “This is quite correct, as flying objects are not like cars. You can’t just put up fence to keep them out. When I got on a flight, I want regulators to keep drones a long away from my airplane.”
