Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) – Drones

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), also referred to as Drones come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are flown for many different purposes. Integration of UAS into the national airspace can become challenging for the user, aviation community and governing agencies to insure a safe and efficient way of using UAS.

UAS technology continues to evolve, and therefore agency rules and policies must be flexible to accommodate a constant change to these processes. An educational checklist has been provided to get a better understanding of operational issues, rules and regulations, and resources.
