The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has extended its deadline for accepting proposals from industry to support the work of the Drone Advisory Committee (see UnmannedAirspace July 23, 2018 UAS traffic management tenders),from 11 August to 17 August 2018.
“The FAA formed the NextGen Advisory Committee (NAC) to partner with industry stakeholders, set priorities, and deliver tangible benefits to industry and the National Airspace System (NAS). Led by airline executives and aviation community leaders who have a comprehensive understanding of shared challenges and opportunities, the NAC convenes three times per year, in public, so that deliberations and findings are fully visible to everyone. Because the NAC has a multi-faceted industry perspective, it can develop a common understanding of modernization capabilities and constraints. It seeks consensus on a broad range of topics, with an emphasis on the near and mid-term. The NAC also fosters a common understanding of success with joint performance objectives and development milestones. It focuses on the scope of implementation, such as prioritization criteria at national level, joint investment priorities, and the location and timing of capability implementation….FAA requires contractor support to facilitate the activities of the FACs (Federal Advisory Committee) to ensure that they satisfy the requirements of FACA and achieve the desired outcome of obtaining expert advice and public input. “
