MissionGO Applauds Recent Bipartisan Drone Legislation Introduction
Baltimore, MD – February 15, 2023
With the recent introduction of the Increasing Competitiveness for American Drones Act by U.S. Senators Mark R. Warner (D-VA) and John Thune (R-SD), MissionGO applauds and celebrates the bipartisan collaboration and innovation for our industry.
The legislation aims to create a streamlined and actionable approval process for beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations, opening the proverbial door for more enhanced and wide-encompassing drone missions. With Europe and other parts of the world already implementing BVLOS operations, this is a much-needed Act to encourage the United States to catch up with the opportunities offered by this kind of work.
“The support from legislators on both sides of the aisle shows how critical standards and forward momentum is for this industry,” says Ryan Henderson, Director of Flight Operations at MissionGO. “MissionGO has collaborated with the FAA for BVLOS waivers. Streamlining processes for safety and operations expectations will enhance our capabilities for critical cargo and infrastructure inspections.”
