Drones — those pesky small, unmanned aircrafts who’s primary job is to gather intelligence, may soon be flying over a city near you.

A new report says “drone zones” – described as designated locations where commercial and military drone tests would be conducted – will vary from small towns to major, heavily populated cities.

Although regulated by the FAA, drone tests have sparked concern over privacy. And now the news of the possibility of one hovering over your city is raising more eyebrows.

According to Breitbart News, the FAA is being urged to consider ‘geographic and climatic diversity’ and ‘the location of ground infrastructure and research needs’ when choosing their drone zones.

Basically, it’s an open field.

So don’t be surprised if you see something hovering – and collecting intelligence – over your city sometime soon.
