After an 18-month delay, the FAA released a draft of the new rule for remote identification of unmanned aircraft, providing the industry with a comprehensive roadmap for the full implementation of the Remote ID system.

Fortunately, you don't have to wade through the 300-page draft because the Fox Rothschild Aviation team has done that for you!

Join Fox Rothschild’s Aviation Practice Group for a complimentary 90-minute webinar on the Remote ID Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. We will provide a detailed analysis on its provisions and how it will change the face of unmanned aviation.

The proposed rule marks a decisive change in the FAA's approach to integrating UAS into the national airspace system. The FAA's permissive approach, which avoided the imposition of aircraft production and design standards, appears to be a thing of the past.  The new rule will impose new requirements on the design and manufacture of all but the smallest toy aircraft.

Topics include:

  • What is the Remote ID system and how will it work?
  • Who will provide the service and what will the FAA's oversight role be?
  • What are the UAS design requirements?
  • What happens to legacy UAS that can't comply with the new rules?
  • What data will aircraft transmit and who has access to it?
  • Are there new operational restrictions on unmanned aircraft?
  • How does this affect the future of beyond visual line of sight operations and unmanned traffic management?
  • What is the timeline for the rule and how does it affect other pending rulemakings?

Who should attend: Manufacturers and operators of drones UAS equipment; federal, state and local regulatory agencies; representatives of labor organizations; insurers; and other transportation safety professionals.
