The Federal Aviation Administration has approved the first-ever fully-automated commercial drone flights.

The US aviation regulator has permitted American Robotics to fly its Scout quadcopter beyond the line-of-sight of human operators.

In approval documents recently posted on the FAA website,  the agency said the exemption only applies to rural areas, daylight visibility, and altitudes below 400 feet.
