PACI Selected by the FAA for BVLOS Rulemaking Committee

PACI, Inc is very proud to represent Technology/Network Infrastructure interests as a member of the newly-announced Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) Operations Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC).

PACI was one of the first eight companies to receive a Part 31/33 Waiver enabling commercial BVLOS flight operations.

The BVLOS ARC is chartered to help the Federal Aviation Administration develop a regulatory path for routine Beyond Visual Line of Sight operations. This rulemaking committee will consider the safety, security and environmental needs, as well as societal benefits, of these operations.

Jonathan Daniels, FASTM, founder and CEO, will serve as the PACI primary participant.

Post-COVID UAS Operations

Restrictions Lifted June 1

The Clark County local COVID-19 mitigation plan expired June 1, allowing for the return of pre-pandemic guidelines that lift restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings and more. Increasing vaccination rates, a low positivity rate and normal hospitalization rates all justify the lifting of restrictions. In the event that hospitalizations should rise, additional mitigation measures may be required for the protection of the community.

It remains important for people to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance on wearing masks. Masks still must be worn in hospitals and healthcare facilities and on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in transportation hubs such as airports and stations.

CDC is announcing that it will be amending its Face Masks Order to not require people to wear a mask in outdoor areas of conveyances (if such outdoor areas exist on the conveyance) or while outdoors at transportation hubs. Therefore, masks are not required for vaccinated people conducting operations at the Searchlight Airpark.

CDC continues to recommend wearing of masks in these areas by people who are not fully vaccinated. Therefore, masks are required for not fully vaccinated people conducting operations at the Searchlight Airpark. We reserve the right to deny access to the Airport for anyone who does not wear a mask without restriction.

More guidance about masks is on the CDC’s website at
