In collaboration with the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and UVS International, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will be holding what it calls the first global Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) Symposium.
Titled “Remotely piloted or piloted: sharing one aerospace system,” the event will be held at ICAO’s Montreal, Canada, headquarters on March 23-25.
According to ICAO, the symposium will provide an opportunity for states, international organizations and stakeholders to identify how existing aviation rules need to evolve to meet the challenges involved in welcoming the RPAS community and to examine alignment between ongoing RPAS development and supporting regulatory provisions.
ICAO says attendees will include rulemaking authorities, air navigation service providers, operators, industry partners, international organizations, manufacturers, researchers and other stakeholders.
Online pre-registration is now available. More information on the event can be found here.
