Complete Text of the Small UAS Rule
The Federal Aviation Administration recently finalized and published this long anticipated federal regulation, which will be effective on August 29, 2016. This new rule fills a regulatory gap which will allow UAS to be utilized in numerous industries, including real estate, agriculture, construction, and public utilities. These new markets will allow the UAS industry to undergo a massive expansion and to make a significant economic impact on Ohio, and on the nation. The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) estimates that in the next ten years the UAS industry will create over 2,700 jobs in Ohio and have an economic impact of $2.1 billion. Brian Wynne, President and CEO of AUVSI, commented, “After visiting Ohio in May and witnessing the wealth of knowledge and expertise they have to offer the UAS industry, I have no doubt the state will benefit greatly from the new rule. Ohio's UAS industry is poised to bring thousands of jobs and billions of dollars into the state, possibly even exceeding expectations.”

FAA 2017 Performance and Accountability Report
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). By directives, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which implements the Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990, requires the FAA to prepare financial statements separate from those of the DOT. The FAA consolidates its key data and information and provides it to the DOT to incorporate into their corresponding reports. Although the FAA is not required to prepare a separate Annual Financial Report or Performance and Accountability Report (PAR), it recognizes that it can better demonstrate the agency’s accountability by presenting performance, management, and financial information using the same statutory and guidance framework as that used by the DOT. For this reason, the FAA has produced its own PAR since fiscal year (FY) 2002.
