Seminar Addressing Drones
Dear FTC, I'm a consumer who enjoys flying UAVs for recreational purposes. I strongly believe that a simple UAV pilot's license should be required for legally operating these devices. As the technology becomes cheaper, and easier to operate, more people (including children) will have access to them. The best way to keep people safe is to educate them. The UAV license should be simple/cheap, not like a traditional pilot's license. Additionally, the FAA's program for registering drones is a great first step to ensure accountability for pilots. I really hope our government can keep this technology accessible, and safe. Best, RT
