PAPA, UAS, and FAA
PAPA takes our place in the UAV community very seriously. Our association has been invited to have "seat at the table" representing PAPA and our members' interests within the UAS rule making groups in Washington DC. PAPA is a respected member of the 26 Coalition*, the SAE** committee on Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operator Qualifications (there's a mouthful), as well as being a part of the FAA ARC that created the Part 107 regulations. Our memberships' voice, comments and concerns are being heard and important UAV legislation is being made with our input.
UAV photographers and videographers are welcome to join PAPA if you are currently offering your drone services as a professional, full or part time. Potential members in the United States must have their FAA Part 107.
If you have questions about joining PAPA, please contact Steve Hane, PAPA VP of Membership at firstname.lastname@example.org
