Right now, there are around 2.5 million drones that regularly fly over American skies, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. In 2020, that number could almost triple, with 7 million drones projected to be active in the skies over our heads, according to a new report) released by the agency today. Of the drones currently buzzing around, they're split between roughly 1.5 million hobbyist drones and 500,000 commercial (the latter being flown by companies for moneymaking purposes).
