AIR INTEGRATION 22 unmanned systems inside   December 2017/January 2018 Photos courtesy of NUAIR. " THE ROUTINE BVLOS WILL PROBABLY START WITH UTILITIES AND THEN THE PUBLIC ARENA, MEANING GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES, WITHIN FIVE YEARS AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE OVER TIME." MOVING THE INDUSTRY FORWARD The opening of the UTM corridor at NUAIR marks an important move forward for UAS, as does the integration pilot program the White House recently announced (see stories on pages 14 and 44). NUAIR CEO Marke (Hoot) Gibson intends to be involved with the program, which will enable state and local governments working with the private sector to determine how local concerns can be incorporated into regulating UAS. The site is looking for partners for that initiative as well. "This really introduces different leverage than we had before and has raised the bar on acceptance of risk to support innovation," Gibson said. "It's very exciting for me to come here to work with NUAIR. The timing couldn't be better after two years with the FAA. It's finally been recognized this is about jobs, lots of jobs related to global leadership."
