CTA Says Drone Language in FAA Bill is a Win for Consumers and Commercial Operations

The following statement is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association (CTA), on today’s U.S. House of Representatives vote on the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization Act of 2018:

“The UAS title in this bill helps clear the way for the FAA to implement beyond-line-of-sight, flight-over-people and nighttime drone operations, which our nation needs to fully realize the benefits of drone technology. The UAS title also outlines ways consumers may fly their drones responsibly without being grounded by unreasonable rules. The drone portion of this bill provides a boost of clarity and confidence to this growing sector of the tech industry, and we look forward to swift passage by the House and Senate.”

The latest CTA’s Consumer Technology Sales and Forecasts Report shows consumer drones are one of the fastest growing product categories for the U.S. tech industry with total sales expected to reach over $1 billion in revenue this year. CTA’s membership includes both commercial and recreational U.S. drone companies.
