We are proud to announce that we are participating in the FAA UAS Integration Pilot Program. This Integration program was designed to be an opportunity for local and state governments to partner with UAS operators and flight schools like us to accelerate safe UAS integration.
This program is preparing proposals to the FAA to fly more advanced UAS operations, such as beyond visual line-of-sight or over people. In other words, this will be the starting process for autonomous flights which will be a huge step in the drone integration process which will lead to many jobs in the future.
The FAA UAS integration program is going to new and exciting opportunities for drone pilots and help shape careers in the drone industry which Steel City Drones & Flight Academy is deeply committed to.
UAS Integration Pilot Program
The UAS Integration Pilot Program is an opportunity for state, local, and tribal governments to partner with private sector entities, such as UAS operators or manufacturers, to accelerate safe UAS integration. Entities that have expressed interest in being a Lead Applicant are forming teams and preparing proposals to the FAA to fly more advanced UAS operations, such as beyond visual line-of-sight or over people.
The Program is expected to provide immediate opportunities for new and expanded commercial UAS operations, foster a meaningful dialogue on the balance between local and national interests related to UAS integration, and provide actionable information to the Department of Transportation (DOT) on expanded and universal integration of UAS into the National Airspace System (NAS).
