Civilian cousins of the unmanned military aircraft that have tracked and killed terrorists in the Middle East and Asia are in demand bypolice departments, border patrols, power companies, news organizations and others wanting a bird's-eye view that's too impractical or dangerous for conventional planes or helicopters to get.
Along with the enthusiasm, there are qualms.
Drones overhead could invade people's privacy. The government worries they could collide with passenger planes or come crashing down to the ground, concerns that have slowed more widespread adoption of the technology.
Despite that, pressure is building to give drones the same access as manned aircraft to the sky at home.
"It's going to be the next big revolution in aviation. It's coming," saysDan Elwell, theÂ Aerospace Industries Association's vice president for civil aviation.
If we don't stop the Governments drone addiction, Â there very well will be innocent people killed by one of these so called drones.
If computers can mess up on a daily basis, what makes any of these high officials think an accident can't or won't happen.
It seems theÂ GovernmentsÂ attitude toward the public is becoming, Â oh well one lost life compared toÂ thousandsÂ isn't such a huge loss until it's one of theirs.
It isn't going to be until numerous people are killed and things start getting noticed just as they are becoming now.
WIth every move one makes or speaks you now have to be very careful of what you say and to who. One never knows you might just get arrested because the cop just plain doesnt like the way you look.
This is getting to be pretty real yet it all sounds and seems so fictional .
