At the DRONERESPONDERS National Public Safety UAS Conference, Jeffrey Vincent, the Executive Director of the FAA’s UAS Integration Office, spoke to a packed house of public safety professionals about what is next for drone regulations – including a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for BVLOS flight by the end of 2024.

The FAA’s UAS Integration Office is the entity tasked with the complex task of integrating drones into the NAS – and collaborating with stakeholders across the industry and federal government to make that happen. Since taking the position of Executive Director in January of 2023, Vincent has been an accessible and visible representative of the FAA, providing frequent updates at industry events and committing to providing more definition around many complex agency procedures.

At the conference, Vincent recognized the importance of drones in public safety. “We understand that drones provide valuable services,” he said. “Drones can and will transform lives.” He then went on to congratulate the community for their sponsorship of cooperation in the industry, which Vincent says is critical to bringing drone integration forward.

Soaring to new heights, together.
