Autonomy and connectivity are the themes for the future of aviation – Interview with Kyle Snyder, NGAT Consortium

Kyle Snyder is NextGen Air Transportation Consortium Director, NGAT Consortium at North Carolina State University, USA. He will speak about Integrating UAS for Healthcare Package Delivery in North Carolina at the Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference, on 20 March 2018 at the North Carolina Global TransPark, USA.

Despite not being a pilot or an aerospace engineer, Kyle has developed a reputation for research leadership and comprehensive knowledge of the impacts of modern technology on the aviation transportation system. Kyle has focused on supporting the broad integration of UAS into the national airspace for routine, commercial applications since 2000. In 2015 he secured North Carolina State University’s position on the FAA’s UAS Center of Excellence ASSURE Alliance. He continues to work with industry, government, and academic institutions to support the transition of research and new technologies from laboratories into operational aerospace products.

What drives you?

I have been committed to developing UAS technologies and supporting UAS integration into the national airspace system since 2000. Accessing the 3rd dimension through aviation technologies presents so many opportunities for economic impact, research and discovery, and personal enrichment (the view is always rewarding). Seeing aviation technologies move from the laboratory into routine operational applications is always exciting.
