DOT Secretary Chao Says National UAV Registry Has Surpassed A Million Users Written 25 January 2018

NextGov reports that in a recent address to Consumer Electronics Show attendees in Las Vegas, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said that the FAA’s Federal UAV Registration program has “surpassed” one million recreational and commercial users. Chao said 878,000 hobbyists registered with the online registry, and 122,000 registrations have been completed for commercial, public, and other UAVs that must be registered individually. Chao said the “tremendous” growth in registration underscores that UAVs are “more than tools for commerce and trade, but can save lives, detect hazardous situations and assist with disaster recovery.”
