Classic Aero-TV: 2017 FAA UAS Symposium - AUVSI Boss, Brian Wynne

From 2017: Brian Wynne Looks Ahead To 'The Hard Stuff’…

The FAA's second annual UAV Symposium held in March in Washington, D.C. brought industry stakeholders and a large number of FAA leaders and employees into the same place to discuss the future of Unmanned Aircraft in the United States.

AUVSI president and CEO Bryan Wynne told ANN CEO and Editor in Chief Jim Campbell at the FAA's UAS Symposium that, for him, the adoption of Part 107 was "the sound of the gun going off." The industry is now making progress with regulators on issues such as flight beyond visual line of sight, flight over people and integration of larger platforms into the mix. "But as long as we work together as a community and take it step by step, I think we're going to get there," Wynne said.

On the subject of local municipalities creating drone regulations, Wynne said that before the implementation of Part 107, such government entities were jumping into that vacuum. "We don't want that," Wynne said, and there is still a lot of it going on. But at the state level, he said, there is a recognition that these are job-creating opportunities, and that will create a "huge" benefit for the local communities in areas like search and rescue. "I think the key is education… getting that word out there, making sure people know what the benefits of this technology are. And the key for our community is that we have to be safe and responsible in the way we fly."
