Earlier this month, the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber joined the FAA, Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, OSU-OKC and Rose State University in hosting a two-day UAS Safety Summit for Oklahoma’s public safety and government operator community.

The event drew attendees from across the state to learn from thought leaders about launching or operating a UAS program, as well as the rules around enforcement of safe drone usage. “Oklahoma is so fortunate to have such a significant FAA presence,” said Roy Williams, President and CEO of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber. “In this summit, we were able to bring Oklahoma’s public safety community a national-caliber conference. The use of unmanned vehicles and drones is going to continue to grow dramatically. This knowledge for the public safety community is crucial as broader implementation of drone usage becomes a reality.”
