Pilots Are Spotting More Drones, Prompting Worries About Collisions

“Pilots are spotting drones in flight at a far higher rate than last year, U.S. regulators said, triggering authorities to step up efforts to prevent a midair collision as drones proliferate in U.S. skies. The Federal Aviation Administration said pilots spotted drones while flying more than 650 times this year through Aug. 9, up from 238 sightings in nearly all of 2014. In June and July this year alone, pilots spotted 275 drones, up from 52 in those months last year. “
