Drone Integration Pilot Program Gets High Interest

[the_ad_group id="923"]

November 20 – The new Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration Pilot Program fosters innovation and advances the integration of UAS into our nation’s airspace to ensure U.S. global leadership in the emerging UAS industry. It’s taking collaboration to a new level!

There’s already been tremendous interest in the Program and more than 4300 people registered to attend our online webinars to learn how they can participate. It’s facilitating partnerships between state, local, and tribal government entities and private industry to gather operational and other data from advanced operational concepts, such as flights over people and package delivery.

Based on demand, we’ve added two more webinars. Each webinar will provide you with an overview of the Program, application process, and the specific criteria and deadlines that you will be required to meet. Registration is required and please register for only one session as they cover the same content.

Tuesday, November 21,12:00 p.m. – 1:15 p.m. EST

Monday, November 27, 12:00 p.m. – 1:15 p.m. EST

The results from the Program will help to inform the development of future enabling regulations that will expand safe UAS operations and help to transition many of the new and novel operational concepts that we manage today by exception into routine, commonplace aspects of our everyday lives.

Details about applying, timelines, and requirements are at FAA.gov/Go/DronePilot. You may also subscribe to receive email updates from the FAA’s UAS webpage.
