Note about the data: we started off with data from The Verge, which compiled a detailed spreadsheet of FAA drone exemptions granted,
enhancing the pdf information published by the FAA.
Like the FAA list, the first reported exemptions date September 25th, 2014. We cleaned the data by Verge. For example, we carefully normalized company names and aircraft models. We also researched the manufacturers of each approved drone model.
Last update: October 9th, 2015, including data up to the 31st of August 2015.
