NUAIR Selected by FAA for Beyond Visual Line of Sight Rulemaking Committee

NUAIR expertise a key asset towards unlocking the true potential of UAS technology and economically viable commercial drone operations

(SYRACUSE, NY) – The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has selected NUAIR to participate in the FAA’s Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC).  NUAIR supports this ARC focused on the development of performance-based regulatory requirements to normalize safe, scalable, economically viable, and environmentally advantageous unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) BVLOS operations. NUAIR CEO Ken Stewart will represent NUAIR on the ARC.

NUAIR continues to work with the FAA, NASA, and industry on key projects that pave the way for future aviation and the overall safe integration of unmanned aircraft into the national airspace system. In 2020 NUAIR and the New York UAS Test Site were selected by the FAA to conduct high-density UAS operations in an urban environment as part of the FAA’s UAS Traffic Management Pilot Program.

“The ability to safely fly beyond visual line of sight is what will truly unlock the full potential of UAS, making commercial drone operations both scalable and economically viable,” said Ken Stewart, chief executive officer of NUAIR. “We’ve been working directly with the FAA for many years, completing meaningful projects together and we are pleased to be selected to sit on this very important rulemaking committee.”

The FAA BVLOS ARC kicked off in the third week of June 2021 and plan to have a recommendation report submitted within six months.
