    According to an article in the LA Times today, 26 September 2014, The FAA announced yesterday that it approved exemptions that would allow aerial photo and video production companies to use drones on film sets, but, friends, as a foretaste of FAA things that may be in the wind for private pilots, here are the restrictions on Hollywood:
    "Drones can be used only on sets that are closed to the public and cannot be operated at night. Operators must have private pilot certificates, keep the drones within their line of sight and below an altitude of 400 feet."
