FAA’s Drone Advisory Committee meets again tomorrow!

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Drone Advisory Committee or DAC meets again tomorrow to discuss all kinds of drone matters, including I’m sure Remote ID for Drones.

FAA’s Drone Advisory Committee meets again tomorrow!

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Drone Advisory Committee (DAC) has wisely decided to make tomorrow’s meeting a virtual one, using Zoom.

On the agenda are, among other things, the following:

  • Facility Maps
  • UTM
  • Low Altitude Remote ID Operations
  • A Standing Operations and Technology Subcommittee

You can find more information on the DAC meeting in this pdf here.

According to this pdf about the Drone Advisory Committee membership, there are at least six positions still vacant.

  • Airports and Airport Communities – two vacancies
  • Navigation, Communication, Surveillance, and Air Traffic Management Capability Providers – one vacancy
  • Traditional Manned Aviation Operators – one vacancy
  • UAS Hardware Component Manufacturers – one vacancy
  • UAS Software Application Manufacturers – one vacancy
It would be nice if the @FAAnews DAC would decide to add some more positions that could be filled with Part 107 pilots. Actual knowledge and hands-on experience flying drones would go a long way in making more effective drone rules. Click To Tweet
