New FAA Interpretative Memorandum on Educational Use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems
The FAA issued an interpretative memo on May 4, 2016, that may simplify FAA requirements for student operation of certain unmanned aircraft systems under limited circumstances. Nevertheless, anyone intending to operate unmanned aircraft systems at the University of Idaho must apply through the UAS Committee for prior approval from the Vice President for Research. For more information, please contact ORA or visit the university UAS website. The UI procedures on UAS can be found in the APM.
