FAA Certifies First UAVs

In what seems to be a different approach then I was expecting the FAA has announced that they are certifying 2 UAV systems for specific commercial applications. I was under the impression that they would be certifying groups not specific manufacturers. It seems that this will at the very least speed up the approval process.

The two that have been issued restricted category type certificates to the Insitu ScanEagle X200 and the AeroVironment Puma AE drones. See the video below.
