Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) new comprehensive regulations went into effect August 29, 2016 for use of small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), more popularly known as “drones.” The provisions of the new rule – formally known as Part 107 – are designed to minimize risks to other aircraft and people and property on the ground.  For the official FAA website, go to

We are developing policies and procedures to keep UF up-to-date with the most current regulations that apply to all of the various programs using UAS at UF.  An approved policy will follow soon.  Please contact John Rouse at 352-392-1591 or send an email to with any questions.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
