Chad Budreau, public relations and government affairs director at the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), on Dec. 19 released a statement on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) tracking and remote identification.
AMA participated in Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC) advisory panel, which recently made recommendations to the agency on this issue:
“Today’s announcement is another step towards fostering safety in the national airspace,” said Budreau.
“We agree that tracking and remote identification makes sense at some level, depending on the UAS sophistication and capability. We strongly believe that we must also continue educating all UAS pilots, which is what truly equips hobbyists and commercial operators to fly responsibly. We look forward to continuing our work with the FAA and UAS industry stakeholders to keep our skies safe for all.”
