This testimony before the United States Senate argues for the creation of a MicroUAS Classification of unmanned aircraft. The testimony argues that Congress should create a MicroUAS classification focused on simple and straightforward requirements that are minimally burdensome and streamlined. Specifically, the MicroUAS category should be for: registered devices, weighing 4.4 pounds or less, which are operated within line of sight, less than 400 feet above the ground, and which coordinate prior to operating within 5 miles of airports.
