UAST is adopting the same collaborative model as the General Aviation Joint Steering Committee (GAJSC) & Commercial Aviation Safety Team (CAST)

The Unmanned Aircraft Safety Team (UAST) is an industry-government partnership committed to ensuring the safe operations of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in the national airspace system. The UAST supports the safe integration of UAS with data-driven safety enhancements and collaboration amongst members of the UAS industry.

FAA Administrator Michael Huerta announced the formation of the team on August 2, 2016. Administrator Huerta committed that the FAA would work with stakeholders to charter a team to address safety issues related to the increasing number of UAS operations. The Safety Team is co-chaired by Ben Marcus, Co-founder & CEO of AirMap, and Earl Lawrence,  of the FAA’s UAS Integration Office.
