Airborne Law Enforcement Association Backs ‘Know Before You Fly’


The Know Before You Fly campaign, which promotes the safe and responsible use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), is now backed by the Airborne Law Enforcement Association (ALEA).

ALEA, founded in 1968, is a nonprofit membership group that supports aircraft operations for public safety.

In partnership with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and the Small UAV Coalition founded the Know Before You Fly campaign last December.

“We are excited to welcome the support of ALEA, a leading voice for airborne safety,” says Dave Mathewson, executive director of AMA. “The work that ALEA does to educate governmental agencies, which use UAS for public-safety purposes, aligns perfectly with the goals of the Know Before You Fly campaign.”

“ALEA is proud to support, promote and advance the safe and effective uses of aircraft in support of public-safety missions,” adds Daniel Schwarzbach, executive director and CEO of ALEA. “The Know Before You Fly campaign provides critical information to help us achieve this goal, and we are proud to work together to spread the message of safe and responsible flight.”

ALEA joins 15 other supporters of the campaign, including retailers, end users and members of the aviation community.
