Drones are falling from the sky!

This year Christmas was marked by thousands of happy drone owners shrieking with glee from all corners of the world. Drones are beyond cool! I mean, come on they are drones! Even if you don’t own a drone, it’s awesome to see one flying around your neighborhood. That is until it crash lands on your head!

New drone owners had little problem using their drones on Christmas day, but most of them had trouble keeping them off the ground. Those who did manage to keep their craft in the air did not have the experience to land it, let alone maneuver around trees and people. The result was hundreds of drones crashing landing from the skies!

Law enforcement and government officials are left scrambling to determine the best avenue to track and regulate the expanding market for the private use of drones. The US requires that any drone over 0.55 pounds be registered with the FAA. Currently in the UK, the CAA requires anyone operating a small unmanned aircraft systems (SUAS) to register their aircraft accordingly. When in doubt, contact your local law enforcement to see if your drone needs to be registered.

With limited airspace to operate in, I for one want to know who’s flying a small aircraft over my head! From the US to the UK and even in Japan, the internet is riddled with videos of excited new drone owners quickly becoming former drone owners. Hundreds of drones have been recorded hitting trees, crashing into homes and cars, and in one case hitting into poor old Nana in the head! With all of these drones falling from the sky, someone could make a fortune offering drone flying lessons! Any takers?
