The council president of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu, led a special, high-level and technically oriented ICAO fact-finding mission to the United States last week at the invitation of the FAA. The aim of the mission was to ensure that ICAO remains proactive on regulatory developments relating to Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) and the emerging realm of sub-orbital space flight.

The International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) new Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) Panel aims to deliver standards for unmanned aircraft to the organization’s governing council in 2018.
