The FAA reported that there are more registered drone operators than registered manned aircrafts in the U.S.
According to the FAA, registered drone operators hit 325,000, compared to 320,000 manned aircrafts. The discrepancy is partially because there are multiple drones registered to one operator, whereas most pilots have one aircraft.
FAA administrator Michael Huerta cites this as proof that the government and industry can work together, as registrations have skyrocketed. Registration is also cost-effective at only $5 for three years.
