A top House Republican accused the FAA of a "shocking lapse of management" in giving the airlines just "hours" notice before furloughing air traffic controllers, leaving the industry struggling to adjust to major flight delays.
For the Federal Aviation Administration, regulating the skies is about to get much more complicated.
Michael P. Huerta,of the Federal Aviation Administration, said, “We need to change the way we do business.” Drones will pose a challenge to the agency tasked with regulating aircraft.
"We are going to allow new ideas to soar to their potential," he said. "Our goal is to safely and efficiently integrate unmanned systems into our airspace ... Building new technology is one thing, but building human consensus on a path forward for our aviation systems is an equally important task and unbelievably complicated. There's a lot of work that has to be done, but I am very optimistic that we'll get there."
