The Wall Street Journal reports that the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is proposing incredibly restrictve drone regulation.

The most frightening news for drone pilots, is the possibility of the FAA making it mandatory for operators to have hours of manned flight experience and a pilot license. They’re also reportedly proposing to limit drone flights to daylight hours.

The restrictions would mostly be aimed at commercial operators, causing major issues for companies like Amazon, who planned to introduce a drone delivery service called Prime Air.

It’s not clear how the restrictions would affect private pilots and hobbyists, but the news of such restrictive legislation will no doubt make amateur pilots fearful for their future.
