Licenses for aerial vehicles. Now, aspiring drone pilots in China can take flying lessons. It's hoped that they'll help keep accidents in the air to a minimum.
Sales of unmanned aerial vehicles are soaring, with some two million sales of quadcopters to private individuals so far in 2015, according to the New York Times. To keep the skies safe, some countries are introducing licenses for drone pilots. China has already issued some 1000 licenses with another 10,000 expected in 2016. But the lessons are not mandatory.
