Good Day,

May I inquire and get a formal reply from your good office if the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) in any way shape of form is involved in certifying and/or authorizing activities and issuing clearances with regards to Remotely Piloted Aircraft System, UAV's or "drones".

This is for the purpose of clarification due to the prevalence and popularity of drones; and to identify Government agencies that authorize and provide clearance in relation to drone activities.

I look forward to your response.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
Julian Teodoro
