Over the last few years, drones have exponentially increased in popularity. While they definitely have pending applications in commerce and elsewhere, there is a concern about the impact drones could conceivably have on commercial air flights. Reuters explains some of these concerns along with the steps U.S. lawmakers are taking to prevent drone-related air catastrophes from occurring.

If you are a little intimidated about flying on a commercial aircraft, you are not alone. Many people are nervous when boarding an airplane, especially when flying long distances.
