Interdrone, one of the largest drone conferences in the U.S., just announced the keynote speaker for its 2018 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Acting Administrator of the Federal Aviation Adminstration Daniel K. Elwell will give the keynote presentation at this year’s conference on Sept. 5, which will be held at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas.
Elwell, former Air Force lieutenant general and former commercial airline pilot for American Airlines, took over the role of heading the FAA in January 2018. Elwell replaced outgoing FAA Administrator Michael Huerta, whose term had expired after being tapped by former President Obama in 2013 to lead the agency.
He was previously a senior vice president for safety, security and operations with Airlines for America (A4A), the leading trade group representing most of the nation’s major airlines.
