    Not sure if this has been posted on here yet, I did look on news and here , didn't see it.
    If this is true I wonder what they have in mind , a licence fee, simplified test ?

    What do you think the regulators should impose for commercial work , if anything

    So far they've given clearance for one company to use UAVs commercially, in Alaska. I'm not sure what the conditions where, but I imagine the operator has to be a licensed pilot with a med exam similar to what has been proposed for future regulation of licensing. I imagine this "streamlining" will be along the same conditions. Although I am hopeful if some farmer wants to look at his crops miles from any other human and 100s of miles from an airport he won't need to be a licensed pilot.
