    FAA’s power to police civilian drones bolstered by U.S. ruling

    The Federal Aviation Administration’s authority to regulate civilian drones was upheld Tuesday in a ruling that gives the U.S. government more power to police the fast-growing use of unmanned aircraft.

    People need to read the actual decision. It is very narrow in scope.

    So in this specific case the NTSB declared that Pirker was flying an "aircraft" and that the FAA could apply 91.13 to his specific flight. He had tried to get around the fine by saying he was flying a "model airplane" not an "aircraft".
