Every day, quite two million passengers and 50,000 a lot of freight fly 27,000 commercial flights within five million square miles of U.S. airspace. At any given time, approximately 7,000 pilots are airborne in aircraft of varied shapes and sizes. The airline industry delivers drive $1.5 trillion in annual U.S. economic activity and supports quite ten million U.S. jobs. Due to active collaboration within the aviation community and decades of technological advancements, U.S. enjoys the safest, most reliable, best, most effective, and most intricate, air transport system within the world.
The recent proliferation of cheap Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), conjointly mentioned as drones, has created the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) job of safety and efficiently managing the National Airspace System even more complicated. Reports of drones operating on the brink of airports and aircraft, and within restricted airspace enhanced quite 500 percent between 2014 and 2015. That’s why we are moving at the speed of innovation to change pilots within the air, and drone operators on rock bottom to share the skies safely.
We are assuring drone operators to comprehend the ''rules of the sky'' and register their drones. Under Federal law, as of December 21, 2015, all housekeepers of unmanned aircraft that weigh quite 0.55 pounds but fifty-five pounds are needed to register to urge a certificate and registration number (just like homeowners of manned aircraft). In just under 12 weeks, the Federal Aviation Agency developed and discharged the tiny Unmanned Aircraft System Registration Service (sUASRS). to change this registration method, and to at an equivalent time deliver coaching regarding the thanks to safely operate a drone, we tend to utilized development methodologies and a hosting resolution that were comparatively unaccustomed to the Federal Aviation Agency but have now become business as was common.
Firstly, the SUASRS was boring outlined using an Agile development methodology. This allowed the U.S. to lower the danger of a makeover and downstream changes, and also provided a faster production unleashes with lower investment as compared to a typical "waterfall" development approach.
