RILA Comments on Clarification of the Applicable Aircrafts

The Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s or Agency) Clarification and Request for Information regarding the Applicability of Aircraft Registration Requirements for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Request for Information Regarding Electronic Registration for UAS. 80 Fed. Reg. 63912 (Proposed Oct. 22, 2015) (to be codified at 14 C.F.R. Chapter I). In recent years, interest in UAS has grown beyond a small group of specialists and hobbyists to include businesses seeking to explore business uses for UAS or drones and more consumers wanting to experience this creative technology. With an increasing number of UAS in current and future operation, retailers recognize the need for FAA to establish clear safety practices and use guidelines and a “culture of accountability.”
