NAR Joins FAA Working Group

NAR is one of 26 industry groups invited to join the FAA Micro UAS Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC) which will meet during March 2016. NAR is the only real estate industry invited to participate in the working group, which submit its report to the FAA by April 1, 2016. 

The rulemaking committee will develop recommendations for performance-based standards for the classification and operation of certain UAS that can be operated safely over people; identify how UAS manufacturers can comply with the requirements; and propose operational provisions based on the requirements. The FAA will draft a rulemaking proposal after reviewing the committee’s report.
