FAA under pressure to open US skies to drones
“The obvious risks have not deterred the civilian demand for pilotless planes.”…..I don’t remember ever wanting to be in a drone craft.
“There is a tremendous pressure and need to fly unmanned aircraft in (civilian) airspace,” Hank Krakowski, FAA’s head of air traffic operations, told European aviation officials recently.”…..Who’s applying the pressure?
“Planes entering these areas are not required to have collision warning systems or even transponders.”…So how do they tell the difference from my Dad who flies radio airplanes? And will this such activity be more regulated?
“A bill approved by the Senate gives FAA a year to come up with a plan; a House version extends the deadline until Sept. 30, 2013, but directs the transportation secretary to give unmanned aircraft permission to fly before the plan is complete, if that can be done safely.”…Fly before the plan is completed? What? Don’t need permission to do something, get used to having it in place and then complaining if the plan is denied? Is this how they push things down our throats?
