The Federal Aviation Administration will not meet its deadline for safely integrating all drones in the U.S. An inspector general report finds that the FAA has failed to establish a regulatory framework for training and certification of drone pilots. Cal Scovel is the inspector general for the Transportation Department, and Matt Hampton is the assistant inspector general for aviation. Scovel explained the Congressional mandate that FAA has to meet when he joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive.
