Jon Resnick

Policy Lead
Policy Lead in Washington DC for DJI. Working to educate, advocate, illuminate and demystify the amazing potential for sUAS.

I work on DJI’s policy efforts in Washington DC with a focus on promoting best practices and effective regulations. I work on issues related to operator and aircraft standards, airspace access and management, privacy and aviation R&D policy. Serve on the board of Drone Advocates for Public Safety (DAPS) and chair the Consumer Electronic Association’s Drone Policy Working Group. 

Prior to joining DJI I had a 20-year career in broadcast journalism, most recently at the Associated Press. There I spearheaded the news agency’s program to incorporate drones into professional newsgathering operations. I was also a founding member and played a leadership role in the News Media Coalition, a group of more than fifteen major media companies conducting formal UAV testing at an FAA sanctioned site. My wife Sarah and I live on the border of the DC NFZ in Oakton, Virginia.
