Does Your Town Have A Drone Overhead?...Check The Map

By, Chris Rossini

"Hey Dad...what's that in the sky?"

"That's called a drone son...Many of them are up there to watch over us; making sure we're all safe".

"Oh yeah, I learned about them in school. We're so lucky to be free, aren't we Dad?"

"Yes we are son....Yes we are."

The Federal Aviation Administration has released a new drone authorization list. The Electronic Frontier Foundation has released a map containing the locations of domestic drone authorizations.
