To assist general aviation flight departments considering the use of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) within their operations, the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) has released a new resource, “Integrated Operational Management and Oversight for sUAS.”
According to the NBAA, the resource provides examples of how flight department personnel can make the integration process smoother, including regulatory compliance experience, increased safety awareness and economy-of-scale benefits. It also contains a checklist of relevant factors to consider when choosing a sUAS service provider.
“This resource offers a starting point for flight departments exploring what sUAS can bring to their operation,” says Sarah Wolf, NBAA’s senior manager for security and facilitation. “This technology has the potential to offer many benefits to business aviation, and NBAA wants to make sure operators begin the integration process with as much information as possible.”
Founded in 1947 and based in Washington, D.C., NBAA represents more than 10,000 companies and provides more than 100 products and services to the business aviation community.
