Feb. 22, 2021

Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are here to stay, and business aviation will play a key role in ensuring their safe integration into the National Airspace System. “There’s so much that [NBAA members] bring to the table with regard to history and context and especially airspace operations,” said Heidi Williams, NBAA’s director of air traffic services and infrastructure. “We have decades of history steeped in a safety culture and risk management that new and emerging technologies like drones really can benefit from.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Doug Carr, NBAA vice president, regulatory and international affairs
  • Brad Hayden, founder and CEO of Robotic Skies and recently appointed member of the FAA’s Drone Advisory Committee
  • Heidi Williams, NBAA director, air traffic services and infrastructure
