If you've found your way to this blog, then I'm guessing the answer is “Yes!” We got a ping over on our Facebook page from an outfit called “Drone Analyst,” asking us to share a survey about doing business with drones in the United States.
I took it myself – it will only take you a few minutes to complete. It's pretty tightly focused on the impact FAA regulation is having on civilian drone businesses and attempts to gauge the cost to the economy in terms of jobs. That's what I got from reading between the lines, anyway.
Reading further between the lines, my assumption is that the aggregated results will be used as a cudgel to (metaphorically) beat the FAA about the head and shoulders in an effort to get them to approve the use of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (SUAS) in the National Air Space (NAS) sooner, rather than later.
To take the survey for yourself, follow this link.
I briefly checked out the Drone Analyst website. It offered some thoughtful commentary on the domestic drone industry, illustrated with an extensive quotation from English literature – Charles Dickens, to be specific – so you have to know that I liked it immediately.
