Insitu may get boost from new bill



WATCHING THE FLIGHT: Washington Sen. Maria Cantwell gets an overview of an unmanned aircraft flight from Matt Lynaugh, director, Insitu UAS Training Services, as he operates the ScanEagle Full Mission Training Device.

Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA) Thursday toured Insitu’s unmanned aircraft systems’ (UAS) training facility in Bingen and highlighted the impact of the recently enacted Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization on Southwest Washington’s aerospace industry. The FAA bill was signed into law on Feb. 14. One of its key provisions, which Cantwell was instrumental in securing, allows the FAA to establish rules under which unmanned aircraft can operate in American commercial air space and aims to speed up the safe integration of unmanned aircraft into national airspace for government and commercial use. The provision opens up significant new growth opportunities for Insitu.
