Last week, the U.S. Department of Transportation and FAA announced the creation of a task force to guide the development of a registration process for recreational Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).  The task force will consist of 25 to 30 representatives from various stakeholders including the Air Line Pilots Association, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, and the American Association of Airport Executives.  The FAA already requires registration for commercial drones and approved 1,891 special permits as of October 15 for a variety of uses.  The task force is scheduled to submit its registration proposals for recreational UAS by November 20, 2015.
