At the FAA Northwest Mountain Region annual conference held in Seattle March 28-30, Deputy Regional Administrator David Suomi provided an overview to the soon to be released new Part 107. In the spring of 2015 the FAA sought public comment on a proposed rule making that would provide new guidelines for small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) that could reduce requirements such as pilot certification and provide new opportunities to enhance UAS operations with the use of observers and similar improvements. The rule making received more than 4500 comments. The FAA intends to publish the new Part 107 by the end of June 2016.
