Pittsburgh Drone Masters shed light on new technology

According to Bloomberg BusinessweekPittsburgh Drone Masters, a meet up group, is working to clear up the myths surrounding unmanned aerial systems. 

Group leader Micah Rosa says that gaining attention helps prepare the population for a future with drones. He wants the public to view drones as an evolution of model planes, not voyeuristic devices. 

"I'm big on education, so I try to be found in search results so that I can bring [drones] out in a good light," says Rosa.

Commercial drones are currently illegal in the United States, but private companies are allowed test flights with experimental airworthiness certificates. However, the unmanned flight industry is expected to reach $89 billion globally in the next decade and online retailer Amazon recently applied for a testing certificate to utilize drones in Seattle as part of an Amazon Prime Air Delivery service.
