The FAA Says Now is the Best Time in History for the Drone Industry. Here’s Why.

 

2021’s Commercial UAV Expo just wrapped up, and professionals may agree there’s never been so much positive buzz in the drone world. New beyond visual line of sight laws are coming down the pipeline, innovative companies are addressing the payload delivery problem, and the the number of legal drone deliveries has hit six figures.

As a part of his keynote speech at the Expo, Steve Dickson, Administrator of the FAA, said, quote: “In many respects, you know, I truly think this is the most exciting period in aviation aerospace history.” And he may be right.

Here’s an excerpt from that interview.
