NBAA2015 Looks to the Future of Unmanned Flight

The Department of Transportation wants all unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in the U.S. to be registered, and NBAA is part of the working group on that issue. “We have been proponents of having UAS safely integrated into the NAS [National Airspace System] for a decade or more now, so we feel it is a good fit for us to be on this task force,” said Sarah Wolf, NBAA senior manager of security and facilitation. Wolf noted that NBAA is offering NBAA2015 attendees education on UAS with two sessions taking place at the show. Seminars will address the maturation of “detect and avoid” UAS technology, and existing and potential uses of UAS in business aviation. The topic also will be covered at Careers in Business Aviation Day on Nov. 19.
