Alex,

That could be one possibility.

The other(which I prefer) is that The Government has already sold out to Crony Capitalist Interests which have constantly run this Country into the Ground and so will not let anyone else enter the Market who has the potential of Damaging the Status Quo and Cosy Comfort Levels for all those Companies currently doing Business here.

tech4people, 

probably this is something very new, and the government itself does not really know what to define.

Alex,

This is where I struggle to understand what the FAA wants/Does'nt want.

After all if it was just a matter of Security then the FAA would have given permission to many more Flying Machines than we have in the Air today.

However,Whenever the Government wants anything;It gets it-No Questions Asked.

"Added security guards were present for the Black Friday event - an American custom where stores cut their prices for 24 hours on the day after Thanksgiving. "

Ariella, that's a good deal for customers.

@Jacob @ashish It used to be unique to the US, but it's making inroads in the UK, according to this

'It was madness. It was over within a matter of minutes.'

Added security guards were present for the Black Friday event - an American custom where stores cut their prices for 24 hours on the day after Thanksgiving. 

Meanwhile, hundreds of people were waiting to get their hands on televisions, DVD players and other goods at the supermarket in Leyton, East London this morning.


There were even some violent altercations detailed in the article.

Alex,

It will be a Massive-Massive Headache to Manage from the FAA point of view.

I am sure you agree too!

Recently Amazon introduced delivery droid, and that's pretty amazing. In the near future we can see many droids flying in the sky fiction movies.
