The FAA has announced several changes to unmanned aircraft systems operations that will go into effect in the coming months. These changes are important for every pilot to understand, according to officials with Kansas State University Polytechnic Campus.
That’s why the university is offering a free webinar and live question and answer session to discuss the updates to the regulations and how they will impact unmanned aerial systems (UAS) operations going forward. The webinar, slated from noon to 1 p.m. (CST) Feb. 25, is free, but registration is required.
The updates to the federal regulations primarily cover remote identification of unmanned aircraft, operations over people, operations at night and requirements for recurrent training for remote pilots. The webinar’s primary focus will be on the immediate changes that will affect remote pilots starting in March.
Kansas State Polytechnic is recognized by the FAA as an expert in the UAS industry and has been part of numerous research projects advising rules and regulations. K-State Polytechnic provides numerous UAS training opportunities in addition to two UAS bachelor’s degrees.
Register online for the free webinar by noon CST Wednesday, Feb. 24.
