Hi Everyone:
New here, I been reading this awesome forum ever since I put the P3S on the Christmas list. I am new to RC flying, but I have been working in the manned aviation industry for 20 years. This morning I saw this on AV web and I thought I would share it here.

The FAA is working toward allowing more freedom for drone operators, and at the same time is working with NASA on a plan to develop technology that will manage drone traffic, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said last week. Speaking at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Huerta said “the next step” in the agency’s regulation of drones will be to allow them to be flown above people, “under specific circumstances.” The FAA is working with industry partners to develop technologies to ensure that safety and security are not sacrificed. The next step, Huerta said, further down the road, will be to allow routine unmanned aircraft operations beyond the pilot’s visual line of sight.

Full story is here.
