Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) can potentially offer a wide range of capabilities and connect people with goods and services. They can replace the human element for dangerous inspections, monitor environmental changes in remote locations, and potentially reduce the carbon footprint of portions of the transportation network. But until UAS are safely integrated in to the National Airspace System, these advances cannot be fully realized. Policymakers need to focus on safety and transparency for a permanent regulatory framework for UAS operators and manufacturers.
Join Ken Dunlap and Paul Lewis, authors of Eno’s recent report, Bridging the Gap: Sustaining UAS Progress While Pursuing a Permanent Regulatory Framework, to discuss the paper and their recommendations for industry leaders on how to leverage the large body of existing FAA work to develop procedures, identify risks, and train workers effectively in UAS.
