NBAA Continues to Monitor Updates on Use of UAS

While the industry is still waiting the FAA’s proposed rule on the use of small, unmanned aircraft systems (s-UAS), NBAA is monitoring the situation and continuing to provide input on their use in the National Airspace System (NAS). Even when a proposed rule is released, it will still be about a year before a final rule is in place, said NBAA’s Director of Air Traffic Services and Infrastructure Bob Lamond. NBAA has long maintained that safety needs to be a key concern with s-UAS, said Lamond, adding that geofencing technology, which keeps the devices away from areas they are not allowed, is a good example of ways to keep them from interfering with operators currently in the NAS. Listen to this week’s NBAA Flight Plan podcast for an update on s-UAS.
