    See http://blogs.rollcall.com/the-container/faa-official-refuses-to-give-date-for-uav-rule/?dcz=

    A particularly eye-popping statement:

    Michael Drobac, the head of the Small UAV Coalition, said Tuesday that it would be a 16-month process for comments, reply comments and a final rule once the NPRM is released and noted that the NPRM “was supposed to be released months and months ago.”​

    He said FAA’s final rule on commercial use of drones won’t come until 2016 or 2017.​

    I'm not sure how the Small UAV Coalition knows what the FAA is planning to do, but if Mr. Drobac is correct, then....well, .... wow.
