Sandra Shelton, Director of Government Affairs, Industry Development and Communications

The Oklahoma Legislature has been forward-thinking insofar as ensuring the State of Oklahoma is seen as a friendly, fly-to state for developing and testing the UAS/AAM industry. SB 659 was passed in 2021 creating the UAS program office within the Oklahoma Department of Aerospace and Aeronautics to help assist fellow state agencies, local municipalities, law enforcement and first responders, educators, and others with current policy and regulation adoption, best operational practices, technology capabilities, grant funding and test site development. Government and private sectors are taking advantage of UAS/AAM and will continue as the regulatory environment at the federal level permits.
