FAA Safety Team holds quarterly drone training

SPOKANE, Wash. - Every quarter, the FAA Safety Team in Spokane holds a meeting about drone safety.

UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems), more commonly known as "drones", are becoming more widely used every day. So in order to make sure people are using them safely, these meetings are held to help answer questions and better train drone pilots.

In the description for the event on Facebook, the FAA Safety Team says,

The FAA is committed to the safe and efficient integration of UAS into the National Airspace System. We will discuss local UAS safety concerns, UAS regulatory requirements, review local airspace, discuss the Low Altitude Authorization Notification Capability (LAANC) with Air Traffic Control, and share best practices with UAS operators.

The meetings are held at the Spokane Fire Training Center located at 1618 North Rebecca near Spokane Community College.

Tonight's event is scheduled for 6 p.m.
