#DOT #OIG to Audit #FAA Approval and Oversight Processes for Civil Unmanned Aircraft Systems (#UAS #Drones) http://1.usa.gov/1Ln8WcC This comes on the heels of an FAA report that pilots reported numerous close calls with drones in 2015. http://1.usa.gov/1Ny0bMh   #droneclosecalls  Moreover, the FAA now has a database of all of the exemptions it has given to use drones commercially under Section 333. http://1.usa.gov/1JkYJXo And yet the slow slog of implementing regulations drags on . . .

Here we go again: #Politico reports that #FAAReauthorization  will not be achieved this fall and Sen #Thune  says that a "short term extension" will probably be necessary. For 5 Fiscal years from 2007 through 2012 the #FAA operated under continuing resolutions, which significantly undermined efforts to modernize the agency. http://politi.co/1MaYwga

#QuietSkiesCaucus  sends letter to Reps #Shuster and #DeFazio asking them to address the impact of aircraft noise on the communities below flight paths in the 2015 #FAAReauthorization Act. The letter outlines 5 items that the Quiet Skies Caucus would like the Committee to consider: (1) mandate a robust community engagement process for new flight paths; (2) require FAA to use supplemental noise metrics and lower th threshold from 65 to 55 DNL; (3) clarify that airport operators are legally allowed to implement mitigation options in areas below 65 DNL; (4) reform 213(c)(2) of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012; and (5) mandate independent research on the health impacts of aviation noise. http://bit.ly/1LdyMQ0

FAA Reauthorization gets delayed until Sept. at the earliest. http://on.wsj.com/1R7Nsnb FAA probably will get stop-gap funding and it will probably be at least a year before a bill hits the floor. Speculation is that spinning-off Air Traffic Control and the debate it would generate was the primary reason for the delay. See also http://bit.ly/1NzI8mz http://bit.ly/1T8AgMr
U.S. House Republican leaders Wednesday opted to delay the introduction and consideration of a broad Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization bill until September at the earliest, in a last-minute decision that caught some aviation industry officials and lawmakers by surprise.
