Remote Pilots Council

The AUVSI Remote Pilots Council (RPC) provides 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 kicked off with a National Tour in the first quarter of 2017 through collaboration with local AUVSI Chapters. These meetings provided discussion with industry leaders from each community, as well as participation from the FAA, and helped craft our agenda for the rest of the year.
