At a time when being good global citizens is more important than ever, the impact of UAS operations on those around us must be addressed. This webinar will discuss several different perspectives, including: what are the results of using UAS/eVTOL in and near airports or in urban environments; how best to communicate with key stakeholders; how sustainability and equity promote greater efficiency; and advantages of AU for inspection/surveillance operations compared to other technologies? Additionally, there are many applications being developed in support of airfield operations (runway inspections, NAVAID calibration, etc.) that can have a positive benefit on effectiveness, efficiency and safety over to conventional aviation..
