Model Aircraft and UAS Operations in National Airspace

Presented by Skip Weigand and Robert Thorson of the FAA:

It's important for everyone to understand safe operations in the NAS. We will discuss the model aircraft Advisory Circular 91-57 and the proper mitigation of risk when operating model aircraft. We will address the plans for UAS safe operations and the concept of airworthiness and plans for integration in the NAS. A Subject Matter Expert from AFS-80 in Washington, DC will bring us up to date with the latest news and answer questions you may have.

    I just spoke with Bob Thorson, one of the FAA presenters and he will share his slides so we can post them up here. Video for later dissemination is unfortunately a no.

    The rationale and I agree with him, is that it is a constantly moving target and putting out a video of the presentation may provide inaccuracy later on down the road.

    Please bring aircraft to show and tell about. While this is a non-flight event, Bob Thorson has set aside two tables for us to display our wares and speak about them.
