DOT/FAA RIN: 2120-AJ60 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: +Operation and Certification of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) 
Abstract: This rulemaking would adopt specific rules for the operation of small unmanned aircraft systems in the National Airspace System (NAS). These changes would address the classification of small unmanned aircraft, certification of their pilots and visual observers, registration, approval of operations, and operational limits in order to maintain the safety and efficiency of the NAS. This proposal addresses model aircraft operations as well. This rulemaking would require regular collection of safety data from the user community to enable the FAA to assess the effectiveness of these regulations and to integrate unmanned aircraft systems into the NAS in the future.
