2021 FAA UAS Symposium Continues as Virtual Event

The FAA and the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International will co-host Episodes III and IV of the virtual FAA Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Symposium – Remotely Piloted Edition. The theme for this year’s virtual event is “Above and Beyond” and will take place on June 9-10, 2021, and Sept. 14-15, 2021.

Registration is now open for both episodes, which will include experts from industry, academia, international aviation authorities, and the U.S. government, who will discuss key areas for the future of the drone community, including the operations over people rule, remote identification, airspace authorizations, waivers, the Part 107 small UAS rule, changes in hobbyists’ drone operations, and other policies and regulations.

Last year, the symposium went virtual with a two-part event called “Drones. Here for Good.” Episodes I and II focused on UAS traffic management, global harmonization, the UAS Integration Pilot Program, and public safety operations.

Episode III, scheduled for June 9-10, 2021, will concentrate on international operations, STEM, public safety operations, recreational drone operations, and commercial drone operations.

Episode IV, scheduled for Sept. 14-15, will focus on UAS traffic management, technology, the BEYOND program, advanced air mobility, and international operations.

Each episode will feature keynote presentations, expert panels, guided and non-guided networking discussions, one-on-one meetings with experts in the FAA UAS Support Center, and informational sessions with live Q&A.
