Everyone in the aviation business knows the importance of the FAA in promoting global aviation safety. From encouraging and developing civil aeronautics, to crafting air traffic control and navigation rules for both civil and military aircraft, every guideline made by the FAA influences the global aviation industry.
In February 2015, the FAA released a set of guidelines on facilitating the integration of small UAVs (sUAV) in the US aviation system. While the guidelines gave birth to various innovative UAV companies in the US, its impact extended far beyond US borders. Following in its footsteps, Asian CAAs are now modelling their guidelines after FAA regulations, to encourage safer and more effective development of the UAV industry in their respective countries.
