May 18, 2017 — The following statement may be attributed to Kara Calvert, Executive Director of the Drone Manufacturers Alliance:

“DMA is studying implications of ruling closely, but believes the existing system has worked well to protect the interests of safe and responsible pilots as well as the interests of society at large. As we wait for word on whether the FAA will appeal this ruling, we hope all sides see the benefit of a reasonable and minimally restrictive form of basic regulation that has helped make drone operations in America overwhelmingly safe.  We look forward to working with policymakers on a long-term legislative solution.”
