Thank you for attending the latest in our ongoing Aviation Webinar Series, “Government Contracts, False Claims, and the Aviation Industry.”
Thank you for attending the latest in our ongoing Aviation Webinar Series, “The Business of Drones … Operating in a Commercial World.”
An essential aspect of the aviation industry is doing business with the United States Government. Whether you’re an airline, a charter or cargo operator, an MRO, a ground handler or a manufacturer, the considerations associated with having the federal government as a client is a world apart from operating in the commercial space. During this webinar, aviation and government contract attorneys from LeClairRyan will discuss not only the basics, but recent developments in dealing with the United States Government as your customer.
In just a few short years, the operation of unmanned aircraft has gone from a rarity to big business. According to the FAA’s newly released Aerospace Forecast, the total number of commercial UAS in the United States is expected to triple by 2023. Much of this growth is expected to come from a dramatic increase in the number of businesses offering “drones as a service.”

Our webinar scheduled for tomorrow, “Current Developments in UAS Regulation: Why 2019 May Be the Year of the Drone,” has been rescheduled to Feb. 27 due to the forecast for inclement weather in the Mid-Atlantic.

We hope you will join us Wednesday, February 20, for the latest in our Aviation Webinar Series. 2019 is shaping up as a critical year for regulatory developments affecting operators of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). In the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, Congress directed the FAA to work faster on setting UAS design standards and opening the airspace to commercial package delivery. Congress also chartered new reports on state and local control of low level airspace and the need for federal privacy laws.
