    Not good. It makes you wonder when there will be a drone - aircraft collision, and what will happen? I can’t see anything good coming from this. :eek:

    ............Why am I not surprised! The FAA can not regulate and prevent accidents with real aircraft. The explosion of drones being sold to the public is impossible to regulate.

    Another big season for stores and millions of drones will be sold.

    I suppose it is like cigarettes. The government knows they kill people. Actually there are 750 thousand smoking related deaths every year. So what is a few plane loads of people?

    The difference is when 200-500 people all die at once with a media frenzy reporting it, puts the spotlight on the FAA.

    ...the "regulator" has lost control of ensuring safety and it will be a matter of time before one gets sucked into an engine. They will always be in a state of catch up because of the speed of government vs the speed of industry.

    There is already a part 135 holder using UAS for delivery. It will be just a matter of time before other operators coming online. Pretty soon the number of manned aircraft will be less than drones. God help us all when the big wreck happens!

    Even if one gets sucked into an engine and brings down an aircraft, nothing will change. Drones are big business and the FAA has to give the impression to the public that it is on top on it and regulating the whole mess. It is impossible!!

    I think maybe when they hit a few people on the ground delivering pizza, maybe something will change??
