TSA: Travelers in 5 states may need more than driver's license to fly

TSA: 5 states require more IDIn four months, travelers in five states might not be able to board domestic flights unless they produce more than a driver's license to verify their identity -- a prospect the Transportation Security Administration is expected to settle this week.

Since it took over airport security in 2001, the TSA has permitted fliers to board domestic flights with nothing more than a valid U.S. driver's license. The Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, though, eventually led Congress to pass a law mandating citizens undergo a tougher process to obtain one -- a move intended to enhance national security.

FAA now requires all drones (even that one you got for Christmas) to be registered

Drones have to registerIf you received a drone for Christmas this year, there’s one important step in the setup process you don’t want to forget: registering it with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The FAA officially launched its drone registry last week. Anyone who owns and plans on flying a drone that weighs over .55 pounds and less than 55 pounds will have to register their drone before February 19, 2016. If you already have a drone, then you can fly it until them with no problem. If you purchased a drone after December 21, then you’ll need to register it before you fly it for the first time. That means those last-minute Christmas presents will need to be registered before they go airborne.
