FAA Gives First Approval For Commercial Drone Flights At Night

Remember when the Federal Aviation Administration said there would absolutely be no drone flights at night? I guess they must have changed their minds. To his credit, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said "we’re growing and learning all the time." So I guess this is all just part of the learning process.

The news that the Federal Aviation Administration has granted approval for the first flights of small commercial drones at night might not seem like a big deal to the average person, but the move also shows how U.S. regulators are now speeding up efforts to authorize expanded uses of the devices.
