The age of drones

It’s been several weeks now since the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has decided to open the American skies to drones.
FAA is informing us of what we can look forward to:

  • Over 600,000 commercial drones expected to be air-born within a year.
  • By year 2025 we can expect a million drone flights. Per day!

And that’s just in the U.S.
(NASA is working on developing a traffic system for drones.)

Drones are here to stay
We know there are many challenges with regulating the use of drones.

From smuggling drugs to a near collision to a passenger aircraft (Europe) we know: enforcing regulations against illegal use of drones it’s challenging.
Some have even taken unusual steps. A police agency in Netherlands is training eagles to catch drones.
(Not the first time we turn to birds for help.)

We certainly know there are many positive, practical uses for drones.
Defense industry, agriculture, real estate, and many other areas.
So the drones are here to stay. And proliferate, for sure.

Let’s hope we are smart enough to enjoy a high-tech environment AND protect the sights and sounds that make our world a beautiful place to live.

Let’s hope future generations can still look up and enjoy the beauty of the blue sky.

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
