Our team is actively engaged with the FAA and other international regulatory agencies as they finalize new UAS regulations. Seeing this space open up is exciting, and I'm constantly amazed at how many applications are possible in different industries. It’s really fun to work with smart people on these issues, and I think Airware is in a great position to make it all possible.

We’ve been working with a group of medical students at MIT-Gates who are experimenting with using drones to deliver vaccines to remote villages in Africa. Their enthusiasm for the project is contagious, and I love supporting them in the field as they make progress. It’s great to be a part of something like this at Airware.
