We invited Dan Elwell back on the podcast in his new role as Deputy Administrator of the FAA. Last time we spoke with him, Dan was taking up the mantle of Acting Administrator and had just told the InterDrone audience the FAA was “open for business.” This year, his InterDrone focused on how the FAA was supporting that business through the UAS IPP and UPP programs. Whenever there’s a changing of the guard, everyone in the industry holds their breath to see what it will mean. On the podcast, Dan addresses the recent appointment of Steve Dickson as the new Administrator of the FAA and assures the drone world he is a UAS advocate. Him and Steve are impressed by what is already being done in the space and are legitimately invested in its future.
