Brian Wynne: CEO of AUVSI

cropped-logo-2048px.jpgBrian Wynne is working for you every day, whether you know it or not. As President and CEO of AUVSI, the leading trade organization for the drone industry, Mr. Wynne is working to make the world safe for drones as the federal, state, and international levels.

If you are not yet familiar with Mr. Wynne, here is an abbreviated biography:

Brian Wynne is president and CEO of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of unmanned systems and robotics. AUVSI represents more than 7,000 members from more than 60 countries involved in the fields of government, industry and academia. AUVSI members work in the defense, civil and commercial markets. Wynne brings in-depth experience in transportation and technology applications gained through leadership roles with industry associations and public-private partnerships. Prior to joining AUVSI in January 2015, he was president and CEO of the Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA), the trade association promoting battery, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and fuel cell electric drive technologies and infrastructure.

Wynne is a member of the Drone Advisory Committee (DAC), a group of key decision-makers formed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to support the safe introduction of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the nation’s airspace. He is also a member of the FAA’s Unmanned Aircraft Safety Team (UAST), which is comprised of stakeholders from government and the aviation industry that gather and analyze data to enhance UAS safety and operations. He also served on the FAA’s UAS Registration and Micro UAS task forces.

For more than 20 years, Wynne has been an instrument-rated, general aviation pilot, and recently received a commercial pilot certificate. He flies a Socata Trinidad.

FAA Part 107: What it Means for You and the Future of Commercial Drones – Webinar with SGS!

Logo 600 x 600Welcome back, Drone Law Nation! Today, we have a special treat for you. On August 31, right after Part 107 came out, SGS and I hosted a webinar on what the new regulations mean for the future of commercial drones.

SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification company. Tracy Lamb heads up SGS’ global “RPAS” team (RPAS standing for “Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems”). As the Global RPAS Safety Manager for SGS, she brings her years of experience as a commercial aviation pilot to the drone industry. Tracy and the SGS team are ensuring the safety and compliance of drone operations all around the world.

Our webinar focused on both the legal issues and practical realities of ensuring that drone operators are in compliance with the applicable regulations. How do you know you’re compliant? How do you know your systems are “safe”? What does “safe” even mean? What is an acceptable risk?

These are questions we get into, and more.
