Sen. Moran Meets with the Federal Aviation Administration's UAS Integration Office Manager


Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement in regard to hosting Jim Williams, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Integration Office Manager with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA):

"Today, it was good to speak with UAS Integration Office Manager Jim Williams. The FAA is responsible for integrating UAS platforms into our national airspace, and I wanted to become better acquainted with their process and the people who oversee the undertaking.

"Mr. Williams and I discussed the incredible progress Kansas is making in UAS' emerging aviation enterprise. Kansas already boasts the necessary attributes to manage UAS activities: airspace for UAS operations; multiple airport support facilities; university research and development on sensors, airframes, and engines; university flight and operations training; and avionics development and manufacturing capabilities. Additionally, the economic growth and impact the UAS industry could have for Kansas is immeasurable. The FAA still has much to do to make certain UAS is properly incorporated and accounted for in our skies, and I look forward to future updates."
