USA: The pressure is building up on the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) regarding the commercial use of drones. To discuss the aspects related to allowing non-military grade drones flying, the US law makers are set to meet next week.

The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee would hold a hearing on Dec. 10 to check on the status of various steps FAA has taken in this mater.

According to the quote given on The Hill, “The Aviation Subcommittee, chaired by U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ), will hold a hearing next week on the status of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) integration into U.S. airspace and the development of the UAS industry,” the panel said in a statement about the hearing.
