With more than 5,500 members, UAVUS is the largest association of civil and civic commercial UAV operators in the United States.
Our mission is to:
• Advocate for the commercial use of small UAVs (under 55 lb.) for aerial imaging; and support and create value for independent, professional unmanned aerial videographers,
• Educate lawmakers on the benefits of commercial UAVs for aerial imaging and introduce technologies that enable safe operations, and
• Create public relations and education campaigns that illustrate the professionalism and high standards of UAVUS members,
UAVUS provides its members with services that include FAA Part 107 support. In addition, UAVUS also offers consultation services to organizations adding aerial imaging assets.
