Whаt аrе thеу ?

Many саll them Drones, some call them Quаdсорtеrs and others call them UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems). Thеу саn have any number of rotors and they can also be planes.

Drones started being used for military purposes because they don’t put a pilot’s life at risk in combat zones. In addition, drones don’t require rest, enabling them to fly as long as there is fuel in the craft and there are no mechanical difficulties.

Drones have been around for almost as long as airplanes have been used in warfare (1911), and that’s not even including bomb-filled balloons that were first used by Austria in the mid-1800s

In the U.S., the Federal Aviation Administration has been cautious about allowing unpiloted vehicles to zip around the skies. There are numerous safety concerns – they could crash into buildings, interfere with airspace or cause many other problems. 

In February 2015, the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) started to allow a limited use of drones, then in 2016, Commercial use of drones in the United States was authorised.  From 2018, the drone regulations advised that operators can fly only during daylight or twilight, with altitude and speed restrictions. Also, drones must be kept in the line of sight of an operator.

Nowadays certain companies including government agencies are using drones to deliver goods or monitor certain natural catastrophes like hurricanes and storms, which could reduce the cost of using drivers for door-to-door services or prevent putting lives of pilots at risk.
