FAA: UAS Not Anticipated to Impact Existing Fleet

On Dec. 26, then Acting FAA Administrator Michael Huerta wrote ARSA and other aviation industry associations in response to a Nov. 8 industry letter concerning the integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into national airspace. The stakeholders asked the agency to ensure that the introduction of UAS would not limit access to airspace or require modification to existing aircraft beyond that necessary to accommodate the NextGen transition.

In response, Huerta noted that the FAA is pursuing its UAS obligations from the FAA Modernization & Reform Act of 2012 in a prudent matter and that the agency does not anticipate UAS integration to impact modification requirements for existing fleets. He also stated that the agency is working to ensure that UAS are incorporated in NextGen planning.
