Update: House Approves FAA Reauthorization Act

Recommended Posts

On Wednesday, September 26, 2018, the House passed the FAA Reauthorization Act—a bill to authorize Federal Aviation Administration programs for five years. The House approved the measure by a 398-23 vote. To be turned into law it must be approved by the Senate and signed by the President.

Once enacted into law, the federal government will have the necessary tools to lift the hold on UAS rulemakings. Congress has authorized the government to establish appropriate remote identification and tracking and countermeasure programs. This will also make it easier for the FAA to develop new regulations that enable routine expanded commercial operations, including flights over people, beyond the visual line of sight, and carrying property. 

Some of the most pressing issues packed within the FAA Reauthorization Act are regulations for deliveries, hobbyists, counter-UAS systems, unmanned traffic systems, and remote ID. We summarize some of the most crucial sections of the FAA Reauthorization Act in our article "House Approves FAA Reauthorization Act and Moves Forward on UAS Traffic Management and Remote ID."

Share your thoughts here on the pros and cons of the FAA Reauthorization Act passing in the House.
