http://bit.ly/1SUtpDL) that the Federal Aviation Administration has approved 24 Kansas businesses to fly drones. The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International says its analysis of more than 3,000 exemptions nationwide found that of states bordering Kansas, only Nebraska, with 17, has fewer exemptions. The exemptions allow companies to operate drones for commercial use until the FAA issues final rules on small unmanned aerial systems, which are drones weighing 55 pounds or less. Some drone-related business owners say industry isn’t taking off in Kansas as quickly as they had expected. But a state official says the fledging industry is important to Kansas. — Information from: The Wichita (Kan.) Eagle, http://www.kansas.com.]]>
