HOUSTON, TX / CRWEPRESSRELEASE / August 12, 2015 / Gerald B. Hammack, President of Valmie Resources Inc. (OTCMKTS: VMRI) hailed stakeholders, including the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems (AUVSI), for advocating on behalf of the drone industry at events such as last month’s Capitol Hill forum hosted by the Congressional Unmanned Systems Caucus.
“While participants at the caucus expressed individual goals for the use of drones, events such as this demonstrate that commercial drones have the capability to transform the way Americans perform their work,” said Hammack. “Valmie joins these voices in encouraging the FAA to open the sky to commercial drone use and allow this technology to make a significant impact on the U.S. economy.”
At the forum, representatives from a variety of industries including farm operators and moviemakers discussed their uses of unmanned systems. The event featured speakers from the American Farm Bureau Federation, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), the Associated General Contractors of America, the National Association of Realtors and AES Corp., an energy company that does business worldwide.
Each of the forum speakers expressed their specific “wish list” for the final Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rules covering small unmanned systems weighing less than 55 pounds, although there were many similarities. Most of the groups want to be able to fly beyond line of sight and at night, and the MPAA and Farm Bureau emphasized a desire for flexibility in the rules to accommodate new/emerging technology.
The Congressional Unmanned Systems Caucus, also informally known as the drone caucus, is a group of members of the U.S. House of Representatives interested in the applications of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s). They serve as the industry’s voice on Capitol Hill and work closely with the sector to ensure it continues to expand through efficient government regulation and oversight.
“In Europe, the number of companies deploying drones for commercial use has risen significantly in the past four years and UAV technology is becoming a thriving business sector,” said Hammack. “We urge lawmakers and stakeholders to keep their sites set on the vast potential that drones offer in the U.S. as UAV’s continue to demonstrate their potential around the world.”
