Manager, Executive Office of UAS Integration Office
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)


Erik W. Amend is the Manager of the Executive Office within the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration Office. Besides overseeing the management and coordination of numerous executive-level strategic stakeholder groups, including the interagency UAS Executive Committee (ExCom) and the industry-focused Drone Advisory Committee (DAC), Erik is responsible for overseeing the creation, development, and coordination of enterprise-wide engagement and outreach initiatives that articulate the agency’s vision for UAS integration. Working closely with internal and external stakeholders, Erik identifies messaging opportunities, delivery vehicles, and measures for quality and success. Additionally, Erik is responsible for leading the development and execution of UAS-related web content, safety outreach campaigns, the FAA’s UAS Civil Integration Roadmap, the promotion of FAA’s UAS work at conferences and events, and the planning and execution of the FAA’s annual UAS Symposium, which regularly draws over 1,000 participants. Noteworthy accomplishments include the initial concept for the FAA’s B4UFLY mobile application—which received a US DOT Secretary’s Team Award in 2017, amassed over 700K downloads, and was then revamped in 2019 in a public-private partnership with Kittyhawk, and National Drone Safety Awareness Week, which, in its inaugural year of 2019 featured over 120 drone safety events encompassing all 50 US states.
Prior to joining the FAA in 2009, Erik worked for United Airlines for 15 years in a number of operational and planning leadership roles, most notably as the Planeside Manager at O’Hare International Airport, where he oversaw ground operations for more than 325 daily United Express flights. A graduate of the University of Connecticut with a B.A. in Political Science, Erik has been a Project Management Institute certified Project Management Professional (PMP) since 2006.
