FAA Hiring 15,000 Drone Pilots?

The Federal Aviation Administration is putting out a notice that it wants to hire an extra 15,000 Air Traffic Controllers (ATC) over the next few years.

Sure, some of those will be used to offset retiring ATC personnel, but there's also the story that the government wants to field up at least 15,000 drones over the USA in the coming years.

Helluva coincidence, wouldn't you say?
