The Federal Aviation Administration finally made some rules for commercial drones — and drone owners seem pretty pumped.
In order to fly the machines, operators have to pass an aeronautical exam. More than 3,300 pilots signed up to take the exam Monday morning, the first day it was available.
But if you compare that to the estimated 600,000 commercial drones that will be sold this year, there are plenty of other pilots who will probably need to add their names to that list.
