“BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Dangerously close. Days after new rules are proposed for drones to fly in the U.S., pilots are scared it’s a collision waiting to happen. The FAA is reporting more and more near-misses in the skies.
These drones are generally pretty easy to get and relatively easy to use. They are becoming so common, officials worry it’s a just matter of time before one collides with a real aircraft.
Every day, the FAA says there are an average of two incidents involving drones and manned aircraft. That’s more than twice the monthly average reported last year.”
