The FBI only have two drone pilots

The FBI has spent over 3 million dollars on their drone program but only has two pilots. This seems to be quite a limiting factor in launching a successful and useful operation.

The FBI has only recorded drone use for 13 investigations between 2006 and 2013, so it’s not like those two pilots are overworked. Considering the FBI spent $3 million on drones during that time period, you’d think it’d be more eager to use them.
