On Saturday November 19, 2016 I will be participating in a panel at the National League of Cities City Summit. The panel is entitled “Cities and Drones: What City Leaders Need to Know about Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.”
Here is the panel description:
The use of unmanned aviation systems, more commonly referred to as drones, has skyrocketed in the past two years. However, along with opportunity, drones present unique challenges and concerns for city government. Drones raise safety, privacy, nuisance and trespassing concerns, all of which are compounded by the lack of accountability associated with most drone operations today. This panel discussion will bring together industry experts with a focus on helping cities encourage innovation, while simultaneously protecting local interests in a rapidly evolving regulatory environment.

Director – San Francisco International Airport; James L Grimsley Associate Vice President for Research – University of Oklahoma; Reggie Govan Chief Counsel – Federal Aviation Administration.
