New Bills, update on tax filings, and so on
Bills – In two stages
SB 787 – Unmanned Aircraft Innovation Program and the Unmanned Aircraft Innovation Fund
In order to stay sassy, Pennsylvania is going to invest in unmanned aircraft technology. This bill stimulates manufacturing, supports education, funds research, and maximizes industrial potential. This is not much different than the federal roll-out in 2016-2017. The industry has matured in five years, but it has almost twenty years to reach saturation. Part 1 lays the bones.
Takes place in 60 days.
HB 1675 – Unmanned Aircraft Innovation Program and the Unmanned Aircraft Innovation Fund, part deux
There will be a considerable cost advantage to obtaining one of these grants. Reimbursement for drone at 75% max, for example. That’s JUICY. Hopefully cities start looking at the value the technology possesses.

I became a drone technology service integration researcher in 2017 while in university. When I’m not working on drones, I am researching related scientific reports and industry news, flying drones, or I am in dad mode. Contact me!
