Applying for the new UAS Integration Pilot Program

Earlier this fall the DOT and FAA announced a new program designed to help UAS-NAS integration by offering governmental entities, private sector entities, UAS operators and other stakeholders an opportunity to team up and help the integration process along. 

Information on this exciting and potentially far-reaching new program can be found here:

and more importantly here:

https://www.faa.gov/uas/programs_partnerships/uas_integration_pilot_program/splash/

The DRAFT and UNPUBLISHED Federal Register Announcement (publication date expected 11/08/2017 is here:

This program offers an interesting take on integration in that it seeks to bring all entities and interested parties to the table to hopefully arrive at solutions for safe and effective integration.

The program invites participation as either a Lead Applicant who must submit a detailed six "volume" proposal for their application, or an Interested Party, who must only submit basic information such as name, address and entity type. 

Personally, I am excited about this program because I believe it represents a new and progressive way of thinking for the FAA for UAS operations. We will be sure to keep you updated on this new program as more details are made available.
