Last week, the FAA proposed a $1.9 million civil penalty against SkyPan International Inc., for unauthorized drone operations.  The FAA alleges that SkyPan made over 60 unauthorized flights in New York and Illinois from March 2012 through December 2014 without obtaining an airworthiness certificate, registering, or securing a certificate of waiver or authorization for any of those flights.  SkyPan must respond to the FAA’s enforcement letter within 30 days.  This is the largest civil penalty proposed against a drone operator.
