UAS Maintenance, Modification, Repair, Inspection, Training, and Certification (A5)

The FAA already knows how to certify maintenance procedures and train maintenance professionals for manned aircraft, but UAS are different. Kansas State is leading a team with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Montana State University to test current industry UAS practices against current manned aircraft safety regulations. The FAA will use this research set UAS maintenance standards and training certification to ensure UAS are kept safe to fly.
