The NBAA joined five other stakeholders to file a brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, challenging the legality of a "settlement agreement” between the FAA and the city of Santa Monica.

The Alliance For Aviation Across America (AAAA) has recently produced two videos featuring Ca

The increased use of commercial and privately owned small unmanned aircraft systems has raised Defense Department concerns for the safety and security of its installations, its aviation and its people. Guidance was sent in early August to the services and to installations about the use of small unmanned ai
