FAA Set To Crack Down on UAV Pilots

Operators face fines, prison time.

The FAA has finally had enough. After a sharp rise in close encounters this year between remotely piloted UAVs and commercial aircraft, the agency is now warning drone pilots that they face stiff penalties, criminal charges and even prison time for unauthorized flights.
The FAA says there have been 650 reports of UAV sightings by commercial and GA pilots so far this year versus 238 all of last year.
