AUVSI applauds Senate confirmation of Mike Whitaker as FAA administrator

The U.S. Senate confirmed Michael Whitaker to serve as the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for five years with broad, bipartisan support. 

On behalf of the Association for Uncrewed Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), president and CEO Brian Wynne issued the following statement:

“The U.S. has long been the global leader in aviation—but in recent years, the segment where the U.S. has not led is in the integration of new entrants into the national airspace system.

AUVSI is promoting domestic aviation innovation to enhance U.S. aviation leadership and bring significant benefits to American communities.

We look forward to working with Administrator Whitaker and the FAA to support a 21st century regulatory framework that enables routine, scalable and secure drone and Advanced Air Mobility operations.”
