Flying Drones? Watch Where You are Flying, FAA Will Handed Out Fines
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Aviation Administration is trying to make a drone company pay for sending automated aircraft into areas they're supposed to steer clear of. The FAA is proposing a record $1.9 million fine to be paid by SkyPan International. The Feds say the Chicago-based aerial photography firm sent up drones in crowded New York and Chicago airspace without permission. The FAA's administrator says flying drones in violation of federal regulations "is illegal and can be dangerous."
