Dear UAS Stakeholder,
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) will co-host the 2nd Annual FAA Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Symposium on March 27-29, 2017 in Reston, VA.
This Symposium will focus on the potential for UAS and what it takes to get to full integration into the National Airspace System (NAS). Attendees will hear directly from senior FAA officials about the UAS regulatory environment and will have an opportunity to talk face-to-face with FAA experts about the operational challenges facing UAS pilots today. Speaker and workshop sessions will cover topics such as options for operating in the NAS, the future of airspace authorization, and how to address challenges around traffic management, infrastructure and security. Building on the success of the 2016 UAS Symposium, this year’s event has been expanded to span three days and will include a Resource Center staffed by subject matter experts versed on everything from waivers and certifications to policies and regulations. Learn more from the 2016 UAS Symposium Report.
Full details of the event, including an agenda, hotel information, and a link to register, are available at: http://bit.ly/2kx2xVC. Space is limited, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible. Registration and hotel questions may be directed to Jason Blachek, AUVSI’s Registration and Housing Manager, at [email protected] or (571) 255-7789.
Stakeholder engagement remains a high priority for the FAA, and the discussions held at the FAA UAS Symposium will help inform and advance UAS integration. We hope you can join us. Whether or not you are able to attend, FAA’s UAS Integration Office would like your input on the agency’s communication efforts on all things UAS: policy and regulations, future priorities, research, and other issues affecting UAS.
