Safety remains an industry target and is a driving force behind design, testing, and regulations that will lead to widespread integration. In this workshop, attendees will gain insights into the significance of pilot training and operations, methods for manufacturers to demonstrate safety, and specifics into a quantitative airspace risk framework.


  • A pathway to fly under the FAA Operations Over People Rule
    • The FAA’s rule for Operations Over People became effective in the spring of 2021. While providing performance-based safety requirements for manufacturers to develop small uncrewed aircraft that are eligible to operate over people, the rule requires a Means of Compliance for demonstrating safety eligibility in accordance with the rule. Both ASTM and Virginia Tech have developed Means of Compliance to enable the industry to utilize the rule for operations that require flight over people or moving vehicles. Note: The FAA accepted the Virginia Tech Means of Compliance in late 2021, which is now available to anyone who designs, produces or modifies small uncrewed aircraft for operations over people or moving vehicles.  
  • Standardized Training, Qualification, and Operations: The Foundation of Safety 
    • The presenters will discuss the importance of standardized pilot training, qualification, and operations as they relate to safety of flight. Building on their extensive military and civilian flight experience, the presenters share their lessons and why a standardized approach leads to improved safety and efficiency, and reduced risk.
  • Capturing and Mitigating UAV Air Risk
    • The JARUS SORA influences the MoC for UAV equipment, training and operating procedures for more than 60 regulatory bodies around the world. Dr Terry Martin leads the JARUS Quantitative Methods Group which develops mathematical & scientific basis for Air and Ground Risk for SORA. Dr Martin will present an overview of the JARUS Air Risk framework and how it provides traceability between traffic encounter rates, required Target Levels of Safety and performance expectations for DAA and UTM equipment. The presentation will outline emerging techniques for quantitatively characterizing airspace alongside the work he is doing on Detect and Avoid with the TAS-D a cooperative Research Centre funded by the Australian Dept of Defence and Queensland Government. Dr Martin will then moderate a panel of SMEs with diverse experience in Air Risk including DAA and UTM experts, competent authorities, ANSPs, and UTM system providers.
