MAPPS Continues to be Active on UAS

Posted By John Palatiello, Monday, February 23, 2015

As I am sure you are aware, earlier last week, the Federal Aviation Administration issued its long-awaited notice of proposed rulemaking on commercial unmanned aerial systems (UAS).

For the benefit of MAPPS members, our Special Aviation Counsel, Gregory Winton, Esq., has prepared a memorandum that summarizes and analyzes the proposed rule and provides information on filing comments with the FAA. All MAPPS members are encouraged to submit comments.

Additionally, MAPPS released a public statement regarding the proposed rule.

I hope this information is helpful. Given the transformative impact UAS will have on the geospatial community, MAPPS has been engaged in issues on this matter for more than six years. And, we will be providing the most comprehensive information and education anywhere in the geospatial community at the Drone World Expo in San Jose, California on November 17-18.

Sincerely,

John M. Palatiello
MAPPS Executive Director
