Eric Smith to Provide Training Session on UAS Issues

On May 23, 2019, Eric Smith will present on UAS issues affecting airports at the Florida Airports Council's Education and Training Summit in Orlando, Florida.  The session—Protecting Airspace Around Your Airport from Drone Incursions – Legal & Practical Considerations—will discuss the federal regulatory framework, recent changes made to that framework in the latest FAA reauthorization legislation, and how state and local laws may interface with that framework, as well as the potential roles of airports and local law enforcement personnel in ensuring the safety of manned flight around airports.
