Unmanned Aircraft Systems

Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) present opportunities for the support and expansion of the research, educational and outreach missions of the university. Because the operation of UAS is subject to federal and state law and may raise ethical issues, the UAS Committee has been established to review proposed uses of UAS by university faculty, staff, students or third parties (including, but not limited to, consultants or contractors) acting on behalf of the university, and to provide ongoing review of approved UAS use, in order to ensure the safe and legal operation of UAS. The UAS Committee also serves as a resource for faculty, staff and students in need of guidance regarding UAS use and facilitates communication between university programs using UAS. In addition to being approved by the UAS Committee, the drone must be registered with the FAA and have approval from the FAA to fly. To learn more about the University of Idaho UAS application process, you may watch these two videos: UAS Application Part 1 and UAS Application Part 2. To submit a flight application, please click the "I Want To" link in the upper-right corner. Please consider watching beforehand this short video that explains how to complete a flight application.
