Brendan Schulman is DJI’s designee for expert group
DJI, the world’s leading manufacturer of professional and consumer drones, is pleased to announce the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has invited it to participate in its Unmanned Aircraft Systems Registration Task Force. U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx announced the formation of the task force Monday.
DJI takes safety very seriously and has led the civilian drone industry on many technology-based safety features, including geospatial information (sometimes called "geofencing"), altitude limitation and automatic return-to-home and auto-land fail-safes. DJI has previously collaborated with regulators in other countries to create safe-flying guidelines for consumer drone pilots. It is pleased to offer its expertise to the FAA as it considers many of the technical and legal considerations relating to a proposed registration system.
Brendan Schulman, DJI’s vice president of policy & legal affairs, is DJI’s designee for the task force.
"While I am concerned about the short schedule and limited opportunity for public comment, we support regulatory approaches that strike an appropriate balance between risk, benefit and the burden of compliance," said Schulman. "DJI intends to represent the interests of its customers as this process moves forward."
Schulman said DJI is encouraging customers to file comments during the short, 15-day public comment period now open at http://www.regulations.gov/#! documentDetail;D=FAA-2015-4378-0001.
For customers unable to comment through that channel, DJI plans to make a mechanism available to send concerns and suggestions directly to the company so that customer views may be considered in DJI’s work on the Task Force.
