For years, states and the federal government have threatened to pass strict rules that regulate the use and flight patterns of drones that have become increasingly prevalent among Americans, as previously reported by Natural News.

Now, the time has finally arrived.

As reported by NBC News, the federal government is stepping up to fill a void of drone-related rules, announcing recently a plan requiring anyone who buys a new drone to register it with the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Federal aviation officials have become concerned about rising instances of close calls between commercial and private aircraft and privately operated drones that have been flown close to, and into, some of the country’s largest airports.

NBC News further reported:

“In July, there was a dangerously close encounter between a drone and a passenger jet with 159 people aboard setting up to land at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. The unmanned aerial vehicle was just 100 feet away from the passenger jet at an altitude of 1,700 feet; normal safe separation distance between aircrafts is at least 1,000 feet.”
