Durability and Reliability: Understanding the Process
Wednesday, October 07, 2020: 1:50 PM - 2:35 PM
Learn more about durability and reliability as the FAA provides instructional content regarding the type certification process. James Foltz, Andrew Guion, and Ian Lucas from the FAA’s Aircraft Certification service will discuss the benefits of UAS type certification and will offer additional insight on the D&R process. There is increasing demand for type certification of UAS to enable more complex operations. Type certification and production certification for UAS manage risk through safety assurance, giving confidence that a proposed product meets FAA safety expectations. These processes play an important role in integrating UAS into the National Airspace System. This session will provide an overview of the type certification and production certification processes, and specifics of the durability and reliability means of compliance for UAS.
