AUVSI Webinar on Airspace Integration: How Commercial Drone Operations Can Play a Role and Affect Change, Aug. 21

Arlington, Va. – The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International will host a webinar with Earl Lawrence, the director at the Federal Aviation Authority’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration Office, and Mark Aitken, the director of government relations at AUVSI, to discuss how commercial UAS operators can affect regulatory change and support the growth of the UAS industry. The webinar will take place at 3 p.m. EDT on Monday, Aug. 21, 2017.

The FAA has certified more than 55,000 remote pilots to operate UAS for commercial purposes since the small UAS rule, also known as Part 107, took effect on Aug. 29, 2016. Over the past year, lawmakers and commercial UAS operators continue to learn how to share the national airspace and integrate UAS to their fullest potential.

The webinar, “Airspace Integration: How Commercial Drone Operators Can Play a Role and Affect Change,” will highlight important aspects of FAA regulations governing commercial UAS use and provide insights into how UAS operators across several industries can affect regulatory change to support the growth of the technology.

Registration for the webinar is complimentary for AUVSI members and qualified media, and $49 for non-members. Registration will close at 11:00 a.m. EDT the day of the webinar. For more information or to register, contact Tom McMahon at tmcmahon@auvsi.org or (571) 255-7786.
