The Federal Aviation Administration has taken some stands on drone technology by working to develop regulations for people who want to use them.

Several groups are now filing lawsuits against the FAA and some people feel that the delays are stalling careers and technology advances.

At Northwestern Michigan College, students are filling up classrooms in the unmanned aerial systems department to learn more about the growing technology and the careers that surround drones.

However, that technology and some careers could be stalled because the FAA has said that they are illegal to be used commercially until regulations are developed.

Those who use them as a hobby are in what some people call a gray zone because while there are some restrictions, the definition of a hobby is not clear.
