Drone backers mostly welcome FAA's proposed rules

Martyn Williams | Feb. 18, 2015
Supporters of drone technology gave a mostly warm response to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposals that would open U.S. skies to commercial drone flight.

The FAA did point out that Amazon can apply for permission to conduct the kinds of tests it wants to do, even if they are not explicitly covered by the new proposals.

A 60-day comment period is now open, during which anyone can have their say on the proposals, but that's just the start. It's expected to take at least 18 months for the proposals to become law.
