That right folks, at the CES Show in Las Vegas FAA Chief Administrator Michael Huerta announced that there are now over 670,000 registered drones in America. This number already exceeds the amount of registered manned aircraft and Huerta said the FAA expects there to be nearly 7 million drones sold in the USA by 2020.

Drone registration numbers got a nice Christmas bump in the last two week of December with over 37,000 new drones registered.

Remember if you want to fly a drone heavier than 0.55 pounds you must register it with the FAA. The registration only costs $5 and lasts three years.
