Commercial Drones OK'd by Federal Court

Commercial drones are evidently allowed in America after a judge ruled in favor of a drone pilot fined by the Federal Aviation Administration, according to PandoDaily.

The FAA had fined the Virginia man for "recklessly" operating a drone near a university campus, the newspaper reported, but a judge overturned the fine and gave tacit approval for commercial drones to fill the skies.

The FAA has appealed the ruling to the National Transportation Safety Board, which means that drones could be fined if they flew for now, the Web site reported.

However, if the ruling stands, it would help commercial enterprises that have already planned to deliver via drones, according to reports.
