Ever since drones emerged, they have to experience limitations in the operations they perform and where they are operated. Nevertheless, they have potential to contribute greatly to the future of society.
The manufacturers already envisioned some of the amazing as well as fearsome aspects related to the future of drones. These new tasks include the operations with small drones, typically a size of model airplanes. But once the use of such systems becomes common, the ideas for the new areas would start pouring in. Due to extensive spread of visions, people believe organizations like US Federal Aviation Administration should not reveal their views regarding the regulations of ideas.
The authorities have some difference in attitudes towards size of the aircraft, military use, unmanned vehicles that carry payload, and quadrotor or small fixed-wing devices that are used for photography and surveillance applications.
The big devices are forbidden other than war precinct until the development of commercially practical and reliable sense-and-void system, which seems to be a vague mission.
The FAA currently operating in USA is considering any object that flies like an aircraft, and focuses it under the same rules. The use of UAVs have been banned commercially, but an operator has challenged in court to request against FAA fine. While the administration will not surrender without a clash, the industries are waiting anxiously where this matter will end up.
While an individual was flying a small object recently in UK, Civil Aviation Authority accused him but under specific rules of flying. They stated that the object must consider the restricted airspace and remain distant from citizens and residential area.
To put in words, according to CAA, flying small UAVs for leisure use is unrestricted given that the safety rules are followed. Consequently, it would require people to apply for permission whenever they wish to operate it. In this way, they will have insurance, knowledge, and capability in regards to UAVs.
The future of UAV still solely depends on a number of aircrafts used and the way they are operated. There is a huge probability for abuse, which might be a reason for forbidding them, but this ban is not justified.
