Hi Sean,

The NTSB has ruled that UAVs, model airplanes and model rockets are "aircraft" from an FARs standpoint, and with that ruling, FAA has made it clear that they will cite operators for violations, just as they would for a manned aircraft. Of course, this also means that folks cannot shoot at a UAV.....unless of course, they'd like an extended vacation at a Federal Pen.
