Together with AUVSI, the Federal Aviation Administration organizes the FAA UAS Symposium at the Baltimore Convention Center from February 12-14, 2019. The FAA says that they are “getting down to business. We’re not waiting for what’s next, we’re creating it.” We expect to hear a lot more with regards to the planning and timeline of many of the actions announced in the FAA Reauthorization Act. Especially after the Gatwick chaos, expect that safety, security, regulations and Remote ID will be high on the agenda.
