At a time where being good global citizens is more important than ever, the impact of UAS operations on those around us needs to be tackled. This webinar will address several different perspectives, to include: what are the outcomes of using UAS/eVTOL at and near airports or in urban environments; how do we best communicate with key stakeholders; how does sustainability and equity support greater efficiency; and benefits of UA for inspection/surveillance operations as compared to other technologies?  Additionally, there are many applications being developed in support of aerodrome operations (runway inspections, NAVAID calibration, etc.) that may have a positive benefit on effectiveness, efficiency and safety as compared to conventional aviation.
