AOPA is supporting an NTSB proposal that would allow the investigative body to collect unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) accident/incident data.
“The FAA is working on developing regulations that would allow UAVs to operate seamlessly in the National Airspace System,” said Melissa Rudinger, AOPA vice president of regulatory affairs. “This step proposed by the NTSB would help the industry better understand how UAVs operate and what goes wrong in an accident or incident.”
AOPA is a part of the FAA’s rulemaking committee that is making recommendations for UAVs’ seamless access to the National Airspace System. Once regulations have been established for UAVs operating in U.S. airspace, AOPA suggests that the NTSB revisit its proposal to ensure it is still up to date.
The management team running Chelton Flight Systems and S-Tec Corp. in Mineral Wells, Texas, for parent Cobham Avionics saw an opportunity and bought in.
AOPA met with key California legislative staffers to educate them on a proposed overflight of parks regulation.
