Published on : Thursday, May 23, 2019

FAAU.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao today formally announced new appointments to the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Drone Advisory Committee (DAC).

 

 

The DAC is a broad-based, long-term federal advisory committee that provides the FAA advice on key unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) integration issues by helping to identify challenges and prioritize improvements. The committee helps to create broad support for an overall integration strategy and vision.

 

 

Members of the DAC are executives who represent a variety of UAS interests, including industry, research, academia, retail, technology and state and local government. Secretary Chao named Michael Chasen, chief executive officer for PrecisionHawk USA Inc., as chair of the DAC.

 

 

“Innovation is one of Secretary Chao’s top priorities for the Department of Transportation.  Michael and the DAC will help guide the FAA to build flexible, responsive regulatory processes that can keep up with the industry’s creativity while ensuring the highest level of safety,” said FAA Acting Administrator Daniel K. Elwell.

 

 

The DAC is chartered to have up to 35 members and today’s announcement will fill 12 vacancies. The new members in addition to Michael Chasen are listed below:
