On the second Joint Authorities for Rulemaking of Unmanned Systems (JARUS) Plenary Meeting in 2017 from October 2nd to 6th, Dr. Hao Liu was elected as one of the two Vice-Chairs of JARUS.
Dr. Liu is the Director of Institute of Aviation Law and Standard, Beihang University and the Deputy Director of National Research Center of Air Traffic Management Law and Standard. He was also elected as the Chair of International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Asia/Pacific Unmanned Aircraft System Advisory Group (UAS-AG) in April.
Currently, the Chair of JARUS is an expert from European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and the other Vice-Chair is a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) expert.
In recent years, the Institute of Aviation Law and Standard and National Research Center of Air Traffic Management Law and Standard have been engaging in the rulemaking of unmanned aircraft system both domestically and internationally. Beihang teachers are not only active members in JARUS and ICAO but also important participants in the relevant work of Chinese ministries and commissions as well as Chinese Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Founded in 2007, JARUS is an international group of aviation officials and designated experts of many countries, with the purpose “to recommend a single set of technical, safety and operational requirements for all aspects linked to the safe operation of the Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS)”.
After ICAO, JARUS is the second most active organization in the rulemaking of unmanned aircraft systems. It has assisted 52 countries in developing their laws, regulations and standards in this field, and supports the Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems Panel (RPASP) and UAS-AG of ICAO with its expertise and advice.
