UAS Operations Near Your Airport

Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) have seen a dramatic increase in popularity in recent years. According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), reports of pilot interactions with UAS has increased from 238 total sightings in 2014 to 780 sightings through August of 2015. With the sudden increase in UAS operations, the safety of aircraft operators for both manned and unmanned aircraft, as well as the general public, is a primary concern for the FAA. The FAA’s goal is to integrate UAS into the National Airspace System (NAS) safely.
