The Federal rulemaking committee for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and drones has invited State Farm as the only insurance company to take part.
The FAA asked the insurance company to take part in the UAS Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC).
State Farm was the only insurer to receive such an invitation and membership on the UAS BVLOS ARC is by invitation only. It currently includes a spectrum of leading aviation industry stakeholders representing more than eighty organizations.
State Farm’s Maria Hagglund (Law Department) and Todd Binion, Claim Section Manager in P&C Claims will represent the insurer as alternate and primary ARC members respectively.
The insurance company accepted the invitation as its mission aligns with that of UAS BVLOS ARC.
