The Federal Aviation Administration issued a press release today announcing the proposed massive fine against SkyPan International for “allegedly unauthorized unmanned aircraft operations”.
The company is being accused of conducting 65 unauthorized commercial flights, which involved aerial photography, over Chicago and New York’s highly restricted Class B airspace.
“These operations were illegal and not without risk,” the FAA said, and the company now has 30 days to respond to the agency.
