    Registered drone pilots out number full-sized pilots

    An interesting story on the wires:

    More registered drone operators than licensed pilots

    Clearly, if this is the case, it's time to push for parity in respect to airspace use.

    If it's good enough to give GA pilots the use of 500ft and above then surely (simply by weight of numbers), drone pilots should have a *right* to the airspace 400 feet and below.

    Get organized you guys -- you're now a force to be reckoned with!!

    Never going to happen, they are too subdivided and wanting someone else to represent them.

    I was wondering how long until we outnumbered "real" pilots.
    I'm all for organizing and getting a voice.

    Anyone with a cogent plan already in the process of doing this I would be happy to assist.
