Remote Pilots Council


Remote Pilots Council style=


The AUVSI Remote Pilots Council (RPC) was established to provide a forum for remote pilots to engage directly with one another and the FAA, with the express goals to:

  1. Provide feedback on real-world operations
  2. Better understand the FAA waiver process and offer suggestions for increased efficiency
  3. Discuss operational challenges and potential solutions from within the industry
  4. Prioritize needs for additional regulation


The RPC will kick off with a National Tour in the first quarter of 2017 through collaboration with local AUVSI Chapters. These meetings will provide discussion with industry leaders from each community, as well as participation from the FAA, and seek to set an initial priority agenda for the Council.

Attendance to these meetings is open to all, but ongoing participation on the Council will be limited to AUVSI members. Space for each event is limited, so register now!
