I was challenged and told that the FAA didn't authorize the test flights of drones. Thanks for verifying that drones do have authorization to fly over civilian populations. Raytheon had announced in the local newspaper that it had developed a new drone and was testing it. People living in southern Arizona know that various types of exotic aircraft are tested over our heads. Now, if only the Border Patrol gets to use their drones to monitor the border with Mexico.
