FAA Expands Commercial UAVs Flight to All Areas Under 200ft if Already Approved

The FAA on March, 24, 2015 expanded the flight range for all approved commercial UAV companies to the entire US Airspace (exceptions for airports and other restricted airspace) under 200ft.

This is going to open up many more flight areas and research areas for currently approved commercial companies to operate UAVs.  There will be a growth in UAV applications in the near future across many different areas.
