COLUMBIA, S.C. December 13, 2017
The Property Drone Consortium (PDC) today applauded the signing of the Fiscal Year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act into law. The legislation was signed by President Donald J. Trump on December 12, 2017.
Along with a number of matters relating to U.S. Department of Defense funding authorizations, it also includes a provision to reinstate the FAA requirement for hobbyists to register their drone, a requirement which was struck down in May by a U.S. District Court. The bill passed overwhelmingly in both houses before being signed by the President.
“The Property Drone Consortium strongly supports this newly enacted legislation,” said Gary Sullivan, Co-Chairman of the PDC. “With over 800,000 hobbyists already registered in the FAA’s database, it’s critical that both recreational and commercial operators in the U.S. National Airspace System are held accountable to the same standards of safety and efficacy.”

SPRING, Texas, Dec. 13, 2017 -- Two sources of industrial hygiene testing confirm AIRIS Wellsite Services' proven technology and workplace best practices lead to levels of compliance that surpass OSHA's new, stricter silica exposure standard.
Sampling was completed during a recent project in Arkansas' Fayetteville Shale. All samples bettered the OSHA standard for crystalline silica dust exposure, keeping silica dust exposure levels below the OSHA Action level threshold. 80% of the samples produced results below detectable levels.
Sampling done by AIRIS industrial hygiene experts was confirmed by the results of the operator's own industrial hygiene testing. These extremely successful measurements were recorded at every location sampled, which included hot zones for silica dust exposure including the blender and sand mover. Samples recorded in these areas show employees had a statistically zero exposure to respirable silica dust.
"It's not a matter of simply...
