The combination of low-cost and very high value is driving fast adoption of drones for many businesses. New uses for UAS aircraft include law enforcement, search and rescue, agriculture, oil and gas line surveillance, entertainment, videography, photography, real estate sales, and aerial surveying. Eventually there will be many hundreds of uses.
This is becoming big business—FAST, and will generate many new job opportunities.
One of these new, highly-paid jobs is being a UAS pilot. Just remember, there are requirements to legally operate a drone for commercial purposes. Even if you aren't being paid to operate a drone, if you are using the drone to support a business the FAA considers it a commercial operation.
