When I first took flight as a 10-year-old from a dirt road in New England, I discovered what generations of pilots have known: The sky is the domain of freedom and adventure, recreation and innovation.
To me, there is nothing better.
That’s why I find it so exhilarating that the sky is no longer off-limits to most people. Thanks to drones, the sense of adventure I first experienced as a (very lucky) kid is now more affordable than a car.
So it may seem strange that accessing such freedom would require infrastructure, rules, and accountability. And, yes, drone registration.
