The aviation industry and regulators are achieving many notable successes in creating effective policies to facilitate the integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Uncrewed Aircraft Systems, or UAS) into the National Airspace System (NAS). In Eno’s newest report, “Guiding the New UAS Industry to Safety Excellence,” we address two of the most urgent gaps that have yet to be resolved. These are establishing a safety culture among all users and using this culture as a stepping stone to Safety Management Systems (SMS) among commercial users. Now is the time to proactively establish smart and effective UAS safety culture and SMS policies that can work for both recreational and commercial UAS users. In this report, learn how Congress and the USDOT can harness the resources already in place to establish safety culture and SMS. Such proactive measures will create a sustainable and rich safety culture and traditions for the UAS industry.
