FAA’s Integration of Civil Unmanned Aircraft Systems in the National Airspace System Roadmap
Date:11/12/2013

Muncie, IN (PRWEB) November 12, 2013

Bob Brown, president of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), released the following statement regarding the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Roadmap for the Integration of Civil Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System (NAS):

“The AMA congratulates the Federal Aviation Administration on the completion of its UAS integration roadmap. The completion of this important project puts us one step closer to enabling a regrettably restrained domestic industry that is poised to infuse tens of billions of dollars into the US economy.”

“The agency’s roadmap illustrates a necessary and comprehensive process for integrating highly sophisticated unmanned aircraft into the national airspace alongside manned aircraft operations. However, FAA’s plan speaks minimally to the recreational use of small unmanned aircraft (model aircraft) and the emerging community of amateur personal-use UAS enthusiasts.”

“Model aircraft operations are managed by AMA’s community-based safety program, and modelers have operated their aircraft safely and harmoniously in the NAS for decades. However, recent advancements in computerized microelectronics, brushless electric motors and light-weight high-capacity batteries have fostered a new segment of small UAS enthusiasts.”

“The Academy of Model Aeronautics has worked cooperatively with the FAA for the past several years developing and updating AMA’s safety guidelines governing the aeromodeling activity. The AMA is now prepared to extend its community-based programming and lend its experience and expertise in support of this growing amateur personal-use community.”
