Trump to Launch Drone Pilot Program for a Neighborhood Near You

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump will sign a memo Wednesday establishing a pilot program to better integrate unmanned aircrafts into national airspace, the White House said, hoping to lay the groundwork for more modern regulations to keep up with a society keen on drones.

According to the White House, unmanned aircraft now outnumber manned aircraft, and more than a million drone owners have registered with the Federal Aviation Administration.
