Aviation regulators in the EU and the U.S. have announced plans to set up task forces and advisory groups for examining issues around drones.
In the U.S., the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said Wednesday that it was establishing an long-term advisory committee, chaired by Intel INTC -0.54% CEO Brian Krzanich, to support “the safe introduction of unmanned aircraft systems into the national airspace system.”
The committee will work the FAA to identify things the agency should be doing. Members will come from industry, government, research and academia, and the retail and tech worlds.
“Input from stakeholders is critical to our ability to achieve that perfect balance between integration and safety,” said FAA administrator Michael Huerta.
