The Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is bracing for major activity resulting from its first operational rules for routine commercial use of drones. The rule goes into effect Aug. 29. These new regulations work to harness new innovations safely, spur job growth, advance critical scientific research and save lives. More than 3,300 prospective operators are seeking FAA credentials, the agency said.
