UAV regulation debate drones on

The 14th annual Unmanned Aerial Systems conference takes place on the 17th – 18th December 2014, London, UK.

London 28 July 2014


The Federal Aviation Administration is virtually at war with U.S. businesses trying to use small UAVs — unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones. The drone industry is frustrated, he said, "because they're ready to go. They're telling the FAA, ‘Look, the United States is behind everyone else. We've got the technology and we're going to use it,' and the FAA is saying, ‘You've got to slow down. We're not prepared to issue the regulations.'*"

Hear straight from the authorities about the current regulatory status regarding UAVs and where the industry is heading at the 14th annual Unmanned Aerial Systems conference.

Hear from the Civil Aviation Authority who will discuss regulation in greater detail during their presentation focusing on the 'Roadmap to integration'. Presentation highlights include:

*Where are we now with regulation?

*Outlining the future of small and medium unmanned systems: what are the technical challenges?

*Future legislation plans for civilian airspace

Don't miss the chance to hear from a line-up of speakers including:

*Lieutenant Colonel Craig Palmer, Commanding Officer, UAS Branch Leader, 32nd Regiment Royal Artillery
