Title: +Operation and Certification of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems  
Abstract:

This rulemaking would adopt specific rules to allow the operation of small unmanned aircraft systems in the National Airspace System. These changes would address the operation of unmanned aircraft systems, certification of their operators, registration, and display of registration markings. The rulemaking also would find that airworthiness certification is not required for small unmanned aircraft system operations that would be subject to this proposed rule. Lastly, the rulemaking would prohibit model aircraft from endangering the safety of the National Airspace System.
